This was the first "real" quilt I made. "Real" meaning one that can be used for the best purpose in the world...making someone, warm, comfy and cozy. I made it for my mom and chose colors to fit in with her Italian themed family room. She spends most of her time reading, watching Lifetime movies and football in there (as well as a variety of other 'girl' movies we enjoy together).
The blocks, Whirling Star and Rocky Mountain Puzzle, are separated with a sashing and the border and binding match the two main colors in the blocks.
I was really pleased with my first attempt, calling it Tuscan Sun.
My mom loves the quilt. It gets lots of use and is the one featured in the header of my blog.
