    First quilt I made 9 years ago

    This was the first quilt I ever made. Why the teacher had us working on 3" flannel squares...I did learn a lot. Anyway, this quilt is used daily by my granddaughter. It goes between her top sheet and her bed covering (not something I made). It has been washed a gazillion times. It has warm and natural batting and a flannel backing. I just looked at it again last time we were there and it is holding up wonderfully.

    Looks like it has been a great nine years, I know your grand daughter is loving it every day. It looks very warm and I love the colors. Thank you for sharing with us.

    So nice that she really enjoys her quilt. I prefer to see my grandchildren use their quilts rather than have them hanging on a wall.

    The quilt is very pretty. I like the color combination and it looks so cozy. There is something very attractive in simple patterns. You never tire of looking at it. It looks like it will be enjoyed for many moons to come.
