I finally finished the quilt for my Colorado grandson! Happy Dance!!!
I love it, I Love It, I LOVE IT!
Once the top was pieced together, I added two borders to make it bigger to fit a twin-sized bed. The finished size is 72 X 94. I think I may have made it too large but, well, it should still work.
This is before the outside border was quilted. I just ran a line of stitching next to the white border and again next to where the binding would be sewn. I hope that area won’t shift without much quilting to hold it together.
The front. Shout out to Mr. Aitch for standing on a stool and holding it up for the picture. It was raining and the front porch was the only option.
The bottom right corner has a surprise for our grandson – his name (machine embroidered).
The bottom right corner has the dedication: To Lennon with love from Nona 2020 PJH.
And another surprise on the blue stripe running down the back – his initials.
Here is the quilt on a queen-sized bed. It’s plenty long enough! You can see the variations in the blues and greens better in this photo.
