For the past few months I’ve been working on and off on a quilt for my Grandma. She lives in Lethbridge and has been a sewist for as long as I can remember. I wanted to make her a quilt that she could snuggle up with.
It calls for two charm packs and your choice of solid fabric to act as sashing. I used Kansas Troubles Butterfly Gardens.
I quilted it using a grid pattern and a neutral colored thread.
Tuesday my folks and I went to Lethbridge to visit my Grandma and Grandpa. We had a nice drive, though I can’t remember much because I was once again busy hand stitching some Cinderberry Stitches designs. The day was very nice and a wonderful chance to catch up and find out what has been going on with them. We had a nice lunch, headed to a fabulous quilt store called Village Quilts, a wonderful greenhouse called Green Haven and just hung out around the house. Later on we had a great meal including my Dad’s favorite Plumi Moos (plu-ma Moose; I think that is how you would say it), which is a fruit soup. It was pretty good actually, it has a sweet taste for sure. Grandma also made a wonderful wildberry and apple pie with a homemade crust. Which was delicious aswell.
I also gave my Grandma her quilt. I really tried to pick colors that would work in her living room.
I think it is just the right size for a lap quilt and my Grandma uses quilts or blankets all the time.
I learned yesterday that my Grandma use to judge sewing and quilting in the fairs. Can you believe that? Isn’t that crazy?
I think I’ll make this pattern again, I really enjoyed it.
