I’ve been working on quilts for each of my brother’s five children and have been giving them to each one by one. My nephew and his wife and four children came for a visit today, visiting from NY state. It was a joy to see them and I had never even met my one grand niece and nephew. It was fun to give them their quilt in person. I was tickled when the oldest said, “Oh – we can put it over us when we watch TV!” I make some quilts to be displayed on the wall, but mostly I want my quilts to give comfort, warmth and joy. I cuddle under quilts all the time.
I first saw this quilt pattern on a blog and I even happened to have the same fabric collection it was shown in (Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow.) I changed it up a bit not wanting to use white. I used a light pattern fabric from the collection instead. It’s all half-square triangles. Not particularly challenging, but a lot of squaring up! I loved how it came together and I really hope the family enjoys it! Three have been delivered – only 2 to go!!
