    Granny Mary's Replacement Quilt

    Hi Guy's,

    Some of you will have read how Granny Mary's quilt went missing from the nursing home recently. Well Granny Mary is not doing too good, so I needed to make her a new one really quickly..... (thanks for all the suggestions). I went with (I think it is called) a quick rail fence with some of the new fabrics from the Cabbages & Roses range from Northcote Fabrics.

    I took it to her today..... she doesn't really know what is happening around her, but she did look good resting in her bed with her new quilt over her.

    Thank you all for your kind words, thought and prayers for Granny Mary and the really good advice you gave.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    Beautiful and springy looking, I'm sure she is beautiful covered with it. I hope this one doesn't end up missing. Great and fast job. Best wishes to all of you.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I love how you put her name on it. That will be hard for someone in the home to take without it being noticed. My prayers are with Granny Mary and your family.
