We are still in Indy (having a blast!).  Will be back on Friday.

With my Grandma Dee's birthday coming up in just a couple short weeks I have been busy turning all of my blocks from the Bloggers' Block~a~palooza into this this quilt top.  (I don't want her to have to wait 6 months to get her birthday quilt like my Grandma Carol has had to for her quilt!).

Thanks again to my gracious neighbor, Jamie, for letting me use her shady spot.
Oh, and to my biggest monster, Nathan, for using his strong muscles to hold this up for me :)
Fabric is Sunkissed by Sweetwater for Moda.  You can view close ups of the individual blocks here, here, here and here.

Now I just need to piece the back and decide on a binding.  So far I am thinking about one of these fabrics for the binding.

I really love those tiny stripes but those dainty little flowers make me smile.  I would love to know what you think :)

Ummm...WOW! IT is so beautiful and it's obvious you put love into this one. I love how the dainty, fun colors are paired with the strong geometric blocks. Great job!! I love both fabrics for the binding, but you'd have more contrast with the green.

Awesome again! what a fantastic gift! The stripes would be a stronger impact.

I love that quilt to p - and would go for the stripe if it were up to me! :-)

It will look fabulous when it's finished!

Gorgeous quilt!

I prefer the stripes too.

I love it and it's fun to see this finished since I'm using the same fabric for a BOM quilt which will cont. until through the end of this year. If you like the soft flowers the most that's the one you should use, I like all the other who left a comment really think the green stripe would be great.
