This is a quilt I made for my mom to celebrate her 80th birthday. I was just visiting her in Arizona earlier this week, and realized I had never gotten a good picture of it since she hung it up on her bedroom wall. It's still not a very good picture because of the lighting, but it's the best "official" picture I've got! :)
I made this quilt in 2011, right before I started blogging, and I am really proud of it for many reasons. My quilt group was doing a medallion project where we learned how to put on various sizes of borders, and to do the math correctly for the borders! And, by golly, I did the math right on these borders!
The center block is called "Sharon's Star" and I found it on Quilter's Cache. I chose that block because my mom's name is Sharon. I didn't keep track of the particular fabrics I chose for it, but I am still enjoying them because the scraps keep finding their way into my current projects!
I'm linking up with Don't Call Me Betsy for Quilty Flashback Friday, a fun new linky party I just discovered.
