Blogger's Quilt Festival - Second Submission

This is my second submission to the Blogger's Quilt Festival in the Doll/Mini Quilt Category.

For those of you who have visited before (thank you by the way:), I recently finished this quilt for my 90 year old grandmother who lives in a nursing home.  She spends all of her time in a wheelchair these days so I wanted to make something that was small, and could be placed on her lap.  She's a wee bit of feisty one (all 77 pounds) and red is her favourite colour.   This pic is of my daughter who held it up for me once I finished piecing the top.

Love a striped binding, don't you?  Just happened to come across this fabric recently at my LQS so I knew it would match perfectly!

I used my Accuquilt machine to cut all of the isoceles triangles so it came together pretty quickly.  I used a plain red flannel for the backing so it would be nice and soft for my Grandma.

Finished size:  25x31
Quilted by me on my home machine

Little Miss G and I visited her recently on Mother's Day and gave this to her as our gift:)


  1. Such bright cheery colours! I'm sure she loves it. :-)

  2. I love the color combination that you used, it is beautiful:)))
