Granny Quilt II

What a joy, one of the Granny Quilt creators has three sons who have been blessed with new babies in 2017.

Granny Pat knitted a blanket for one, one baby will share his sister’s quilt and, for the baby that arrived in July, Granny Jackie is making something special starting with the fabric cut from the curtains which were shortened for the baby’s bedroom (see June post).  The animal prints are new fabric from Dunelm (too cute to resist) but the rest were from the scrap box, including the remnants from my friend in Eastbourne and a pink ‘lamb’ print which dates back to the 1950s (originally bought by my mother to make curtains for her babies’ nursery).

The design session took place in August – a novel method of double-sided strips will be used – which was intended to be reasonably speedy to complete!

Following two afternoon sessions in October, the quilt is beginning to take shape!
