Heart Strings (39)

This quilt seriously pulls at my heart strings
and has since I first put it up on my design wall

This is a quilt for my daughter
She has moved out on her own this year
all grown up and off to college.

We bought her a new bedroom suite
and new duvet and cover
The cover has the navys and the teals
that are in this quilt

We started picking up fat quarters in those colours to make her a quilt
and I added a few neutrals to mix

I made the Turning Twenty pattern again,
same as my last quilt

Like I said last time, such a quick easy pattern

When I was a girls growing up my grandma made all kinds
of mixed up patchwork quilts

When I had all my blocks together and put them up on my design wall
my heart did a flip,  I had created a grandma quilt

(we were fighting a slight wind taking these pictures)

When I had the quilt top together I sent a picture
to my mom, and she said "wow, you made a grandma quilt!"

I sent a picture to my Sister in law
She said "that looks just like a grandma quilt"

SO I wasn't the only one who thought that

This is special, a quilt for my daughter, that has a special piece of my grandma

I even used a floral flannel backing, just like grandma used to!!

Now if I could just convince my daughter to let me keep this quilt!!

This quilt is 85x85
Free Motion Quilted by me!

I love how your quilt turned out, Conni. Blues are my favorite to work with. This does remind me of the quilts my husband's Grandma made and presented to us when we were first married. She used pieces from clothes etc and yes, always a flannel backing. A great quilt finish.
