It is always my birthday

Whenever I like something it is always my birthday.
And I like a lot. My friends know this and let me be. Great friends.

Modern Grandmother's Flower Garden

I bought myself the book 
hexa yo-yo by Tacha Bruecher 
lastyear and fell in love with 
this modern hexagon quilt.

I got started right away with the hexagons, 
in bright colors. 
As background I used grandmother's linens
that some good friends shared with me. 

I went crazy with the border and , adding pieces of 
different fabrics to get the size I wanted, and than I cut
two sides of the borders wavy. 

This is my back, pieced and with a soft raspberry flannel and the brown
polka dot fabric I used as border. 

You can see some of the machine quilting that my friend Jeri from Soundview
Long Arm Quilting did. Wonderful job. 
Now I am trying to decide if I need to do any stitching or buttons in the yellow centers. 
What do you think?

Jelly Roll Quilt Challenge Completed

The original pattern had the quilt 
quilted vertically with a beige thread. 
I tried that for about 8 rows, and realized that I did
not like that at all. It took away from the pattern. So I ripped it all out. 

 I quilted the quilt horizontally 
with a blue thread in the solid color bricks, 
and with a beige thread in the light section. 

I bound the quilt with a gold solid color fabric. 
I am happy with it, and hope my brother will be also.
