Throw Blanket Gifts

Plaid Throw Blanket

A month ago I planned to sew together a gift to give to my parents who were coming for a visit near the time of their birthdays.  I also wanted to send with them home with a throw blanket for my grandma who is home-bound and whose birthday was also coming up.  The days clicked by, and my parents’ visit was suddenly upon me!  I had just one week to complete the projects!  So my wonderful husband helped me out by watching the kids and doing the homeschool sessions with them while I quilted.  

I did a simple 10-inch block using fabric from my stash.  It worked out well because some of my stash I got from rummaging through my grandma’s material that she doesn’t use anymore.  So I knew that she would love the colors and pattern.  The quilt pattern was a simple straight line going opposite directions on each block.  Each quilt took me one day to complete (not doing anything else).  Not bad!

I like how the quilting made a cross-hatch pattern.

    I like your quilt!

    I will try to send you the pictures of the banners that I have made for our grand kids.
    We had a Creative Women’s Fellowship at church on Monday.
    We sure miss you!
    Will try to e-mail you some of our finished projects. (If we ever complete them).
