My daughter's quilt

I last made my daughter a quilt when she was about 14 or 15. It has finally been loved to
pieces! I haven't quilted in years and years, but she assures me that she sleeps much better
when wrapped in a quilt made by me. (I fell for it, sap that I am) I am now in the process of
paper piecing her a new quilt. What I lack in precise paper piecing, I hope I make up for in
effort involved. Some of these blocks have close to 100 pieces, some less, all SMALL.
Only 3 more to go and I can set it together and get to quilting.

Here is the album for the Bird Block (or will mama go blind first) quilt

note: my swirled snow is made from an internet picture. I have been unable to
find the original source for the work to credit them.

July 1, Summer is here. I always wait until now to say that. Once is has been said the heat and humidity become an issue here in the Mid-West.
I have been working on a quilt for my DD, it is slow going as it is paper pieced and each block
has multiple (insert:MANY) pieces. Here is a very bad picture of one block. It looks much better in person, my DD said it was her favorite so far. I have 4 blocks left to do (by Christmas)
