Mr. B’s Quilt is Finished


I’ve enjoyed making quilts for all five of my grandchildren. Some of them were simple quilts made from a single piece of fabric surrounded by a border. Those gave me a wonderful place to practice my long-arm quilting skills as well as being a cozy little quilt suitable for small hands to snuggle. My first three grandchildren were the recipients of those quilts.

After they were finished I decided to make each grandchild their very own lap quilt. Using the same pattern Cathedral by Villa Rosa Designs I made five different quilts. These are the first four.

The fifth one was made for my youngest grandchild, Mr. B. With the help of Mr. B’s Mom we chose a color pallet of oranges, blues, white and black. Mr. B was born during the summer of 2016. Even though I started his quilt long before he was born, it wasn’t finished until many months later. Here’s how Mr. B’s very own lap quilt looked when it was finished.

Mr. B’s quilt was quilted with an off-white thread and a geometric stitch pattern. I’m so thrilled with how it turned out. I just love the fabric colors and how the stitch design helped to acentuate their patterns.

My goal of creating a lap size quilt for each of my grandchildren is now complete! Who knows what is next.

    1. The kids really don’t care what pattern was used for their quilt. Of utmost importance was receiving a Nannie quilt. Then came color choice. The girls really got into posing for their photo. Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I really appreciate your visit!

    1. Thank you! I know they feel very lucky! They absolutely love their quilts. The pattern is so fun and easy to make and all it takes is a change in colors and it takes on a whole new look. Their smiles are contagious!
