For My Grandma!

Dutch Pinwheel Quilt
My little wall hanging is all done! I'm thrilled to be bringing it to it's new home next week. It's going to live at my grandma's house. She's so kind and generous and has sewn many nice things for me over the years, that I know she will like something made especially for her by her granddaughter.

You see, she's not able to do much sewing or quilting anymore, and I know this will be something she will really enjoy looking at throughout the day.

She'll appreciate the time and the love and the energy that goes into creating things and I'm so excited to surprise her with this. (PS... Family, please don't spoil the surprise!)

I hope this will brighten her week and let her know how much she is loved!

Your grandmother will surely love this darling quilt. I have used some of the same Snippets fabrics in my Grandma's Friendship Blocks quilt. I had 6 vintage dresden plate blocks from the early 40's made by my mother in law. Found them in 2003 after her death. Used the Snippets in log cabin blocks and sashing. You can see a pic on my blog.
I love the colors in the 1930's reproduction fabrics.

I saw it in her library. She does love it:) Aunt Jan

That's a wonderful, colorful quilt, and it's very sweet of you to make something for the woman who has made so much for you. What a great idea!
