I have a wonderful boss. She recently became a first-time grandparent. I wanted to make something for her grandson. I had the Little Prince fabric that was perfect. I backed it with a blue swirl with stars and had it quilted in a loopy pattern with stars. The pattern I used was "Side by Side" by Come What May Creations. My boss learned French as a young girl, and the LIttle Prince was the first full book she read. I did not know about this when I made the quilt, but it makes it more special.
Made this quilt using a pattern in one of Donna Peterson's 3 yard quilt books. Made it for our local quilt shop as they are currently promoting the patterns by this lady. Simple quilt to do for sure so I tried a bit of decoration for the outside border.
Our father contracted WNV back in early 2000s. He was hospitalized for some time. He lost the use of his legs. Being 6ft and weighing around 165, he was fairly thin anyway. He would get chilled easily and had asked me to make a lap quilt for traveling back and forth doctoring. He wanted it narrow enough to just fit in the wheelchair. I used old pants, batting and a chunk of leftover flannel. He worked with therapist and at home to try and strengthen his legs. He was fitted for leg braces and was able to finally walk with those and canes. Soon after his eyes started macula degeneration till he was so bad, he couldn't see. His mental health went downhill after that. He passed away in 2015. As a Cowboy all his life, we thought ranch life would have done him in, instead it was a mosquito.
Misty did a cute tutorial on this project, turned out so pretty. I wanted to give it a go. Thought it would brighten up my sewing room. So purchased all the supplies and went after it. I did a tight stipple on the main piece for structure. Made up fairly quickly, good instructions and Ta-Dah!!
