Our family is heading south this week to Nebraska to visit family. Can't wait to get out of town. One of the things I am taking with me to show off is my Grandma quilt. M.I.N.E. After all the other quilts I've made using Grandma's shirts (#s 1-3 and # 4), I finally got mine completed and couldn't be happier.
Based on this style, I put those HSTs to work and I L.O.V.E. how they turned out.
I sent it to Emily's quilter and she did a beautiful job. Thank you, Lynn!
It really just makes me so happy.
Merry Christmas to me. I wrapped it up and put it under the tree, even though everyone in my family had already seen it.
Finished dimensions 57 inches by 67 inches.
Cut 1 1/2" strips of red/blue floral for inner border
Cut 2" strips of white for outer border
Thrifted striped chambray sheet for backing (about $3)
Binding made from the red/blue floral fabric Grandma had in her sewing room--the consensus is we think she had plans for it to make a new apron.
