"Betty Lou's Blues" by Barb Montgomery

Hello!!



Another UFO crossed off the list. Only a couple of more left to tackle!!
This is for my mom for Christmas.  That was Christmas 2009.  I'm a little
bit late but she won't mind.  She's "snowbird" and in Florida for the winter
anyway and I plan on surprising her by having it on her bed when she returns
home in a couple of weeks.  The pattern is a nine patch - eight point star
that I found in an old issue of Quilters Newsletter magazine.  It appealed
to me because it was a terrific way to use up all those scrap pieces of
whites and blues in my stash.  I call it   "Betty Lou's Blues"

Beautiful and just my colors. Did I tell you I'm up for "adoption"? Great job and nice to have another UFO behind you. I know the good feeling it gives you to get something finished that has been a looooong time in the making.

Barb--

Blue and white quilts are so classically beautiful and this one is no exception.  Love the pattern.  Your mom is going to be so thrilled with it.

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments.  My mom did love it and has told me that she keeps taking it off the bed to take with her when she visits her friends to show them.  Is there anything better than giving a gift that is so much appreciated?

I'm going to teach my girls how to quilt.  Maybe I'll get one as pretty as this.

Nice quilting too.  I hadn't thought of using scraps this way, but it really is what makes the pattern so nice.  I have a lot of green scraps.  This would be a good pattern to use them.

Barb, what a wonderful gift and how great is it that your mom has her own show & tell with her friends?! Always nice to know when a quilt is so loved.
