    Latest Finish

    I just finished this quilt for my MIL who just moved from the hospital to the nursing home. The top is a cheater panel because I needed something quick. I used Quilters Dream Request batting and non pill fleece on the back. It is very soft and warm. This is the first time I have used batting and fleece together. I like it. It gives the quilting more definition and it's warmer. I just did simple outline quilting of the blocks.

    That is a most lovely quilt for your MIL. I know she will appreciate the fleece backing too.

    Beautiful! Where did you find this cheater panel? I've not see one like this in all my searching! It's really pretty!

    I reinforce that advice. It's too beautiful to get lost.

    Thanks for all your nice comments on my quilt. My MIL does love it. She just holds it up to her chest like she treasures it. She wouldn't wear a coat to leave the hospital, but wrapped up in her quilt. The fabric is "Sunshine Bouquet", by Wilmington Prints. I bought it at my LQS from their sale shelf for $4 a yard! There is also an awesome border print that goes with it. I bought some of that fabric too, but it would have made the quilt too large for her to handle. I'm thinking about buying more yardage to make a bed quilt for myself. The border print would make a nice mitered border. I think blue and yellow quilts are my favorites. Thanks again for the comments.

    Voice of experience here. I, too, am saying PUT HER NAME ON IT. Things in the nursing homes "get lost" too easily. Also, nursing home laundry is hard on things so, if you live nearby, you may want the staff to know you will launder this quilt when it needs to be done. I swear everything in most of those facilities gets washed on hot with bleach!
