The first was a baby quilt, made in lime greens and bright blues.
I liked it so much I decided to put it on the back of a quilt I was making for myself! I won these lovely blocks in a quilt forum lotto in 2010; because they were made by my quilting friends it is a comfort for me. No matter how stressed out I may be, I can relax and nap with this Minky-backed quilt around my shoulders. It's a nice size at 6'x3.5' and the bright yellow always lifts my spirits.
A small lap quilt, backed with blue Minky, was made for a friend who was facing several trips to a hospital with her ill daughter. I included a large tote, big enough to hold the quilt, her Kindle, snacks, etc. - whatever she may need to carry with her while her daughter was in treatment. Unfortunately, I can't find a picture of that one.
On the Oct 13, 2011 posting I showed a recent quilt, made for my nephew when he started his first year at college. I used the same deep blue Minky on this one that I used on the lap quilt. Once I had the body of this quilt done it didn't seem long enough, so I had to get a little creative with a top and bottom border. Similar to a 'sidelights' style, I used bright squares and rectangles to extend it. I like the addition and will do that again!
Minky, Minky, Minky!
