Full of Flowers Quilt #53

I ran a Class a couple weeks ago 
introducing some of the ladies to the 
Five Minute Block 

the pattern we use was 
Basket of Love in the 
5 Minute Block Book by
            Suzanne             McNeill

So today I am showing you what Sandra B of 
Kingaroy... ended up doing for her class

In class we concentrated on doing the 5 minute blocks 
and then Sandra wanted to make hers into a quilt for 
her mum...who is in a Nursing home here in town 

So Sandra used her basket of flowers for the center of her quilt and the added a small border and went on to make some 9 patch blocks and complimented them with a applique heart and alternated them in the end she had 2 borders made up this way and to finish she used a 5 minute Block border :)  

then it was over to me for quilting 
Sandra wanted to just have stipple on the 
quilt all over 
we used a variegated thread and 
purple backing...yes I did go over the 
applique hearts at the request of Sandra as it is 
going to the nursing home where  her mum
is living ") for Birthday in August 

What a lovely gift a little piece of home 
and love to keep her warm on those 
cold nights ") 

It is amazing what you do 
with a simple idea and such a 
gorgeous quilt can come from it 

Well I am off to do another quilt ") 

Happy Quilting ") N
