Working quite a bit around here!
Hi everyone! I have been working a lot of days straight, so that is why you have not noticed me posting anything. I did get the border on this little quilt. It is the same as my folk flowers quiltlet border. I tend to do that a lot...when I get something that works, I repeat it! Although this one was a bit tough. The background and white borders were kind of a textured fabric. It was in the stash, so I was trying to use it! It was kind of difficult to use...and made the quilt a bit wonky. I laugh at the old time practice of deliberately making a mistake in a quilt...I make enough of them naturally, LOL! This was on the list to finish this year, so I am very glad to get it to the flimsy stage.
Isn't this the cutest quilt ever? A very generous, kind hearted and loving person donated it, as a patient quilt. I love it!
It is all made of flannels, and is so snuggly and warm looking!
Another scrappy lovely beauty...

And!! Another flannel, soft quilt!!
I love this block...isn't it fun? Plaids make it sing for me. A huge thank you, on behalf of our hospital patients, for these quilts. These are being donated by an anonymous donor, to help share some love and comfort with some very sick patients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! They will soon be shared with sweet and loving patients! I am awestruck with the generosity of this person!
Mother's day was spent at work...13 hours at the hospital, in charge. Dear husband got me these roses...thank you so much!!
