Bloggers Quilt festival


This is a quilt I created for my grandfather during his stay in a nursing home. It was crated using a blue flannel, creme and solid blue fabric. The creme and solid blue were sewed into a four patch and alternated with the flannel. giving the appearance of diagonal stripes. The two borders were of the creme and blue. Once it was together it was hand tied.It took about a week to complete.

  17. I like that you made this for your grandfather. A very special kindness. The design certainly does pop, making this look like a complex quilt pattern. Always love blue and flannel for softness. Also like that you tied it.

  18. I really like the blues, and of course flannel is great not just for the feel of it, but because it stays put.
