Today I took a trip to Joann’s to buy some fabric to back and bind my Recess quilt. I decided to go with navy flannel for the back because I have seen (and felt) several quilts that have been backed with flannel and LOVED how soft and cozy they were. I came home and got my quilt sandwiched and ready to quilt. This evening I decided to go ahead and get the quilting done. Here it is. I still need to bind it. Having second thoughts about the fabric I bought for that. I got red and am not sure now…would love some opinions :)
To say that I LOVE this quilt would be an understatement. It turned out better than I had imagined in my head. I know that it is a super simple BUT I don’t care I LOVE IT!!!
I used Recess and it is about 54 inches square right now.
This quilt is for my Grandmother. It will be a Mother’s Day gift from me and the boys. My Mother passed away when I was a baby and she was my Grandparents only child. Mother’s Day is bitter sweet for her. My Grandmother is getting old and her health isn’t very good. I really wanted to do something special for her this year. I know that it will really warm her heart.
This quilt was inspired by a quilt that my Great Grandmother made for me when I was little. I will try to take a pic of it and post it in a day or two.
This will be the 1st quilt that will be given to someone outside of our house (although it is still going to family). Up until now I have had a very hard time parting with the quilts. I still have a hard time. I really want to keep this, but I knew when I was making it that it would be leaving. I made sure to tell my hubby that it was for my Grandmother that way I couldn’t back out :)
