My grandson Jacob has worn out his quilt from 2006, and he has grown considerably. Since he is now in college and in an apartment I thought I would do his school colors, Western Michigan University. It is flannel backed to help with the cold weather.

My daughter-in-law mentioned she would love to have a throw quilt for the family room. She would like it made from all the scrap fabric I have used over the years for them. I did my best and hoped they would enjoy the memories. It did grow in size from a throw to about a queen.
This pattern is Illusion, and was fun to make. This was a Christmas gift for our son and daughter-in-law. Her favorite color was green so all the blocks have green. It has a modern flare, which I think they like. I did put grey flannel on the back. It will be a warm and cozy winter for them.

What a cold snowy January this year in Ohio. What better time to quilt. I decided on a Five and Dime quilt as done in the tutorials on Missouri Star Quilts. I had some great assistants, Lucy and Paige, granddaughters who helped me arrange the fabrics. One of the best things I did was back it with flannel, it just stays there and doesn't move or shift. Very cozy!
