Lisa's Birthday Quilt

My daughter Lisa's birthday was July 5th.  This spring she had asked for a quilt for their guest room. She and her husband Kevin had a color scheme and idea in mind.  We worked on EQ7 and had a rough design but somehow it didn't get saved!  They came to visit again and approved the fabrics I had set aside and we got the design finalized.  I showed parts of it in progress.  I had it pieced and half quilted before our trip to Hawaii.  I managed to finish it and mail it to arrive on her birthday.   The leaves are fused on and then free motion stitched. I forgot to take a picture of the piecing backing!  
Bricks and Vines for Lisa and Kevin

It turned out great, and I am glad Lisa likes it! I'm impressed that you had it all finished and mailed when I asked you about it :)

Good colors for a guest room. Nice of you to follow their ideas and make it together. I played on EQ with my 2 grandson's this week. I have a couple custom quilts to work on after the Row Quilt is done.
