“Nana, I really like this design, do you think you could make me a quilt like this?”  grandson

Here’s what we came up with.  I think that it will cover him for at least a couple of years!

The quilt is about 72×84, machine pieced and machine quilted

    He looks like very happy with his new quilt! It is very beautiful! I love how the color pops!

  2. I can see why he loves it. Fun to have him involved all the way through. Perhaps he will catch the bug and become his generation’s quilter of the family… stranger things have happened.

  3. It is a wonderful design and your chosen colours make it a real beauty!
