Remember this quilt? And how my grown son, Paul, wanted me to “fix” his childhood/young adult/adult current favorite quilt? Most of you were cheering me on, anxious to see what I did with it.
Well, it is on the back burner for now. It gives me anxiety to even think about how I might fix it, and to what extent. For right now, and to get him back to having a TV quilt, it was quicker to just make him a new one! You saw me working on it here, here, and here.
60″ x 58″
An original by Sewfrench
Based on a classic design
5″ equilateral 60° triangles
Hand quilted on each side of all seams
This quilt was inspired by a quilt I see every day.
Ours, I say ours because when you marry property become jointly owned, right? Well, ours hangs over the rocker in our bedroom. It, as well as Paul’s, was made by Grandma Sue, and because it is lightly hand-quilted it makes for a most cozy quilt. It is our favorite, often fought over, nap quilt.
The fabric on the back, of this one, is a wonderful print with a repeat of triangles on it. I used Quilter’s Dream cotton batting to give it that light as air feeling. And because I chose to do this in 5″ triangles, the quilting is 4 1/2″ apart giving it a very flexible, fluid move. I know Kona is not as soft as 80’s cotton, but with a few washings, I think it will have a similar feel. Over time, I hope it holds up better and longer!
I’ll get back to the restoring before this one wears out, I am sure!!
