These are four quilts I gave to the grandma of the family who had the fire last week; one for her son, one for her daughter-in-law and one for each of the children. I can’t imagine losing one child and certainly not two children at the same time. Though it seems small compared to the lives lost, they also lost everything in their home.
The boy is 9 and the girl is 13 so I needed to come up with two masculine quilts and two feminine quilts. Not sure how well I did but I realize that I need to make some masculine quilts to have to give out when needed.
These were quilts that I had already made but the only one that was finished was the pink and gray Topsy Turvy Nine Patch. They’re all finished now and were delivered to the grandma yesterday.
When the weather is too cold to be out, I don’t have a good place to take pictures so I decided to use the dining room table.
This first quilt was made from the Nickel Quilts book, using the Paducah Nine Patch pattern but I believe I made my blocks bigger. I haven’t looked at the book in forever. The backing is a fossil fern flannel so it should be nice and snuggly in this cold weather.
Then I decided to stand in a chair and get a better picture. This one is the pink and gray Topsy Turvy Nine Patch.
This one was a mystery top from several years ago. It was quilted but the binding wasn’t done. I like this quilt. The top is all batiks and the backing is a lime green flannel.
Seems like I’ve been working on the binding forever on this peach and blue quilt. Glad to have it finished and hopefully bringing a bit of comfort to someone in desperate need of lots of comfort.
Surely wish there was something more I could do for these folks but as a quilter, I’m happy to be able to share a few quilts with them.
