Marg's Quilt

I finally finished my sister's 50th birthday quilt. I did start it 3 years ago but got distracted designing  in between, thats why I needed to start that long ago.
I thought long and hard before I began the quilt. I couldn't decide wether to use 1930's fabric or civil war as she loves both BUT my final decision was to draft a pattern from an antique quilt I brought in Houston 4 years ago, Marg loved the block in the quilt when I brought it.
I use a combination of paper piecing, appliqué and machine sewing. I lovingly stitched the label and packed it into a gift box at 1 am the day of her birthday......
She loved her quilt and has it on her bed.
