I am so excited to be able to say the first of the senior's quilt is finished as of about 20 minutes ago.
Can't wait to give this quilt to a well deserving member of our country.
Lets take a look at the quilt before I tell you where its going.
I decided to go with a nine patch block and thought a good size was to make ...nine blocks.
Back a while ago I won a spool of variegated King Tut tread on a blog give away. I thought this would look lovely used on all the multi coloured blocks.
Just love how the tread has come up on the blocks.
This quilt has a special place in my heart as I am sending it to Sydney for Pa's 90th birthday on the 4th March. Pa lives in a little unit a street over from his daughter and her family.
Pa has been such a lovely/wonderful father in law to me for 29 years now. Remember he bought me my sewing cabinet when he came across for Amy & Ben's wedding.
I can't think of a more deserving person for this quilt to be given too.
Label on the back of the quilt. Tomorrow the quilt will be posted off to Pa and I know he'll love using it on those cool days and evening listening to the TV.
My next project is three 12 inch sampler blocks. Its a surprise and I am not saying anything else as I don't want to get back to the person it's for.
Once these are made, I'll start the second senior's quilt.
Rubs hands together... I am so excited about this project.
