A Floral Saturday Afternoon Quilt from the Past
As my grandma prepared and moved from her home to a care center she meticulously gave away and donated the majority of her possessions. In fact, you couldn’t visit her without leaving with a load of books, pictures, kitchen items, etc.
But there were a few things that stayed in the house longer than others and this quilt was one of them.
I made this quilt years ago from some beautiful Penny Rose fabric…when I saw it I loved the prints…especially the large bright floral print on the navy blue background…and I knew that my grandma would love it to.
So, I snatched up a pile of the coordinating prints and got to work making a quilt for her.
I really liked how it turned out…and I was so excited to give it to her.
The pattern is our Saturday Afternoon PDF Quilt Pattern….which has been one of my favorites for ages….and I love how well it shows off those florals.
I’m still not used to this stage of life where quilts I’ve given to others are making there way back home to me but, I still have my grandma around to call and visit with and I will take that for as long as I can.
And I will forever feel lucky every time I see these quilts that have returned home to have had people so wonderful to make quilts for.
Quilting is more than a hobby…it is a blessing.
