This special quilt was a very different style for me. I usually do pretty saturated colors but I wanted to try something different. I found a great set of 10 inch Anna Griffin squares on Ebay and really liked the pink and black combination. It sat on my sewing table for quite some time as I wondered how to put it together.
This last winter my Grandma was very sick and I decided to whip up a quick quilt for her that would be comfy and pretty. I thought she might like the fancy fabric so I looked through my fabric stash for white and found some I received from her.
I had only finished the quilt top when I found out that she had gone to be with the Lord. As I wondered if I should quilt and bind it, my family asked if I would like to finish the quilt and keep it with her. It went together beautifully and I was able use fabric for the backing that was leftover from a wedding quilt she made for me. So while she was enjoying her new life, I was comforted to see this quilt with her at the funeral, and comforting is what a quilt should be.
