    Warm n cosy quilt for a 90 year old.

    My Warden's Mother-in-law is 90 and although very active feels the cold so I decided to finish one of my UFOs, the batik star used Warm n Natural cotton wadding AND a pretty fleece backing so it's nice and warm and cosy, I hope she likes it.

    love the batik stars. she'll love the pretty side and the cozy side
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very pretty...I like how you have placed the 4 off white squares in each corner and used white triangles in between. It really makes the stars pop and creates secondary patterns.

    She should love it. At 90 she deserves to be warm and wrapped up in love. How kind of you to do this for her.

    It was by accident, I was using up bits n pieces and then spotted the second pattern when I started putting in the sashing.
    Thank you ladies for all your nice comments.
