Anna's Quilt and Pillow
The unexpected gift of a Snow Day last week meant I had time to sew Anna a quilt for her bed. I've been wanting to make a nine-patch quilt forever, so I decided to use up of scraps and make a pastel scrap quilt with lots of sentimental fabrics.
This has fabric from three dresses I've made, from the leftovers from the quilt Grammy Rita made her, from quilts I made for Aunties Linda and Shannon, and some fabric we used to line the wheat baskets at our wedding.
I backed it with a pretty sheet I had from Goodwill and used some extra squares to make a quilted pillow sham. I purchased NOTHING new in the making of this quilt. That was fun.
