Happy Sunday!! A slow stitching day!

I received two quilts back from the quilter!  Whoop!!  These are patient quilts, just the right size for a hospital bed, or maybe to cover a person going to x-ray or chemo.  So I will be working on binding these, today.  This one  is made of blue charm squares.
This one is made from a jelly roll.  I have really not used jelly rolls before, so I am glad to use this one all up!!
Notice the little pumpkin table runner?  Just the right season for this! I love it!

 This does not look like much in the picture, but is very precious to me.  This was my brother's baby quilt, and I am sure it was made by my momma.  It has a few straight lines of quilting through it, and maybe a piece of flannel for batting.  It has no binding, yet seemed to be one of those "birthed" quilts, sewn together and then turned right side out.  As I no longer have my brother, this is very special to me!!!  It is 57 years old.  




Have a great day, each of you!!

Love the pop that the stars make on the charm Square quilt. How precious that you have your brother's baby quilt. You lost him too soon.

Any information you can write down and pin to your brother's quilt means that one day someone else will know how precious this quilt was to you. And perhaps make it more meaningful to them as well.
That blue quilt with white stars is beautiful!

Your quilts will be a comfort to two patients. I know you often do this. I can imagine the wonderful impression you make on these people.
