Okay, I think she's gone now.
I made my grandma a Festive quilt for Christmas. The pattern is by Aneela Hoey; the fabric is Winter's Lane by Kate and Birdie for Moda.
So...some background. I started this quilt in August. I had all intentions of finishing it and being ahead of schedule--pat yourself on the back, Emily! Except, not so much. Knitting and other projects came in and this sat on top of my bookshelf until last week, when I realized I needed to finish it ASAP.
The blocks are huge! This quilt is about 64" x 64" and the blocks are only three across each row. I enjoyed making them--as much as I love the look of fiddly little patchwork, sometimes you just want something big and easy.
|Oh hey, guess what? My lens had a smudge and I didn't realize it until now. Whoops.|
The backing is Winter's Lane poinsettias, which I picked up at Quilted Thimble Cottage last weekend. Thanks God they still had some prints in stock! It was a double whammy of a good day--I got poinsettia backing and I got to talk to Caleb, Jenn's four-month-old baby. He's a sweetie!
Of course Schnoz approves.
It should be in Ohio today, so let's hope the post office doesn't fail me. Merry Christmas, Grandma!
