The finished quilt, all washed up. The pictures and quotes softened up quite a bit, not as stiff anymore. The edges of the fabric blocks frayed a little, but that's the whole look of a ticker tape quilt.
Folded the quilt nicely and tied it with a pretty pearl ribbon.
This is the bag it went into and the pretty card I chose for her, I love how it's a 3D vase of pansies.
The card reads, "Pansies always stand for thoughts, so these have come your way to show that you are thought of with happiness today." And I wrote on the back, in the space provided, "Family ties are precious threads no matter where we roam, our love for each other is the thread that binds us. With love, your family and friends"
