It's been ready for some days, but I could not post any pics until the recipient was in the air, winging her way over the Atlantic. My niece Mathilda will be lading shortly after 5pm local time after an exiting year in Flint, MI - mom and friends are going to meet up at the aiport. And at home guess what awaits her? The (second) patriotic quilt, this one made from all these gorgeous jelly strips that the marvelous fellow Pickles sent me. I delivered it on Sunday (possible thanks to my darling, who drove me over in the worst downpoor ever) and my sis and me placed it on Mathilda's bed and it looked gooooooood:-D

The top made with blocks inspired from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by the Lintots.

The back made from Mark Lipinski's Califon fabric

I think all the blocks are unique and here is a small collectionof them.

So whatdayathink??? Pretty great - huh??

Sis - love you too and hope you both and your furry gals (no Mathilda, you are not included in that ROFLMAO)have a great Midsummer. Ha, you know what I think about that holliday - right ;-9 Mera kramar:-D
