    Simple Heart Quilt

    Haven't posted pics for a while, so thought I'd show you a simple pixelated heart quilt I made for my new granddaughter's big sister (aged 4). We had a little chat after I gave it to her, since I am her little sister's Granny, we decided I could be her Granny too . This was made out of some new, some vintage fabric all pin-cord and flannel. The red outside border is made from a pair of 1970's pin-cord pants. Sorry for the pic quality. The quilt is straight, it just looks wonky the way I pinned it to the curtains.

    That is very sweet of you to make her a quilt. Sometimes the older one feels a little out of it when the new one arrives. I bet she loves it.

    nice gift for the sister
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I love how you have pinned it to your drapes for the picture. I actually use my huge drapes in our living room as my "design wall". I will pin different projects on it so I can get a feel for them. Way to go.

    The pink with the red looks good, and then the multi-colored patchwork gives it a nice variety. Nice of you to do this!
