This was my Mother's Day present, a copy of The Ohio Collection by Anita Shackelford. I have been following Nancy's progress on Tattered Garden, and I wanted a copy of the book myself.

I often choose my own presents. I buy something online and when it arrives I give it to my husband, unopened, to be hidden until the appropriate day. It's the best way to get just what I want. (One of the local advertising flyers said, Surprise your Mum! with a range of perfumes. I certainly would have been surprised with a gift of perfume...)
This was my Mother's Day present in 2013. The range was Pomegranate by Blue Hills Fabrics. It made another appearance at our Primary Patchworker's quilt show last month.
And if you'd like to see some fabulous red and green quilts visit Collector With a Needle. Dawn has pictures from an exhibition with quilts from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Colorado. About halfway down the post is the Osborn Signature Quilt with autographed fleur de lis blocks. The signatures are around the edge of the block, rather than in the middle like Rachel Dickey.
