I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
This is the finished quilt top for the quilt that I am making for my new grandbaby that is due to arrive on April 3rd. Her name is going to be Lilah Rose, so that is why there is an "L" in the center of the quilt. The "L" is machine appliqued. The top is made of simple half square triangle blocks. I put them together into 4-patch blocks, added the applique, then sewed the 4-patches together as a large 9-patch unit. Really fast and easy. The finished top is approximately 39 inches by 39 inches.
