I made this quilt for my daughter who will probably never get married. So I called it  "Something Old, Something New, Somtthing Borrowed, But no Blue" Quilt.  I love reusing old Clothes and pieces. She is now 29 and some of the fabric is from her clothes when she was in her teens, and some was from my high school dress's.  I did have to buy some new fabric.  I had always wanted to make one of these since I was 18, so now that I'm retired, I can sit and sew.  Took me 9 months to finish doing about 1-3 hours a day.

What a nice gift for your daughter :-)   Because it's made with old clothes, it already looks lovingly worn & soft!

I am totally impressed!  I made one square when I was learning to quilt and that was enough for me.  You quilt is beautiful. I know your daughter cherishes it.

I love it, It will be treasured forever.  I made a quilt for my daughter when she went to college.  Now, 10 years later she informed that that in case of an emergency evacuation (we live in California) her exit strategy is to scoop her cats on top of the quilt, throw the quilt over her shoulder and get out!  So happy my - her quilt made the list!

This quilt it beautiful.  Wonderful job on doing a great traditional block pattern. It is sure to be treasured forever.

I made a queen sized one but it is called "NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S FLOWER GARDEN QUILT" as I tried to sew the pieces by hand but I failed miserably.  I finally gave up and hand basted each piece on to a paper template, pressed it good and then removed the paper and piece by piece would machine sew them together into a block.  Mine is bright colors for the garden, then a row around of green for grass and then a white row joining all the blocks for the path.  I used  fancy stitch and black thread joining it all together.  Will put it in my album when I get one started.  I also added a notation on the label where I apologized to all the past quilters for machine stitching instead of hand piecing and quilting.  But it is DONE and after 7 years, that was a good thing!

Gorgeous! & so sweet using some of her clothes. I still treasure a ratty used up quilt my grandmother made from some of my old clothes, it's been loved to pieces.

What a beautiful quilt.  This has to be one of my all time favorite patterns.  My goal is to hand stitch and hand quilt a bed size.  So far I have only tackled a pillow top in this pattern. Seeing your quilt totally encourages me to stop procrastinating and start piecing. Thanks for sharing.
