The Quilt on my bed

It’s summer in Texas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a quilt on your bed!  This is what I call a summer quilt–it has no batting, just a flannel backing.  This is also a make-it-while-you-travel quilt.  I like having some sort of handwork to do in the car, so I made templates of this pattern, got together a bag of red, blue, green, gold and brown scraps, and traced and cut them in the car (and got threads all over me in the process).  Then when I was home, I pieced them on the machine.  They aren’t perfect, but it’s a harmonious look for the bed, and it gives me a cozy feeling inside.  My daughter and I like to snuggle on the bed, look at books from the shelf next to it, and talk about our favorite fabrics in the quilt.

  1. sarah, sorry to hear about your mother….
    i found your blog through HEO; we have been using CMason/AO/HEO for many years – now my two are finished with homeschool – one graduated last year and one at the end of this year- DV.
    i started quilting a month ago:-) (first timer!), and am enjoying every minute of it; i am making an african quilt and want to use it as a wallhanging/headboard behind our bed… still deciding on how big it must be… glad i found your blog.
