    red and orange disappearing 9 patch

    Hi,
    I started this little quilt (about 42" x 50") probably 1 1/2 years ago. All that was needed to finish was to put on the binding and I finally did it!!! It's a gift for a male cousin who lives in a nursing home; he has always loved reds and oranges. He's never really cold - this is just to brighten his room a bit.

    So it's to cozy up the room not the guy? Hey, that's as good a reason as any. Don't know what his nursing home is like, but my mom was in a dreary place that needed a few of these bright, beautiful quilts.

    Won't he be thrilled?! I love it. Your border fabric reminds me of one I used on a quilt for my daughter.

    Love the quilt. just a note -- you might embroider his name on it --- as things have a way of disappearing in nursing homes.
