Aside from quilting samples for the shops New Years Launch , which I can't share with you for a few more weeks, I have made two quilts for family members. The first was for one of my sisters.
Now I'm not sure how the 'Quilt Police' & her deputies feel about me gifting a quilt that I made a couple of years ago? But isn't it the thought that counts?
I was planning on making my sister a quilt, like I did for my other sister ( see here ).But when I found out it was a birthday that was ending with ' 0 ' I thought, perfect timing to give a quilt!!! Then this one came to mind, it hasn't been used, so I washed it, to freshen it up, put a label on it & a hanging sleeve.
The simple pattern was from a magazine ( sorry can't remember which one! ), I do remember the pattern called for fat 1/8's & simple stitcheries.
The next is made with the recipient in mind, one of my nieces.
