This is a quilt that me and my mother made for my grandma. Its the brick quilt pattern, with bright fabrics.
Unfortunately, our sewing machine broke down during the quilting part, so its half machine quilted, half hand quilted. Undecided (My mom was glad she got all the piecing done before it broke....) Cheesy I hope my Gran likes her new quilt.


Finished quilt.

Gorgeous!  I love all the bright colors and different patterns.  I'm sure your grandma will love it - made all the more special with the hand-stitching (and the blood, sweat & tears that went into it as well.......)  Grin

You and your Mom did a wonderful job on your Gran's quilt.
The block you chose really shows off your beautiful fabrics.
It's great! Cheesy
