It was funny when I signed up for this hop I asked my mother n law what sort of quilts they made in the 60's and it sounds that the style of today's quilts are the same so that didn't help. So down to my stash of books I went and the very first magazine I picked up had this pillow in it so it was meant to be. so I had to make it.
When my grandchildren come down they will have a nice pillow to lay on and maybe leave my cushions on the couch. I also thought they might need a small quilt to wrap up in.
The material was so nice to machine quilt and I sewed the binding on by machine and it laid down so nice. I picked this quilt up last November during Midnight Madness from Connecting Threads for less than $20.00. A great buy. It measures 54 by 54. I wanted to take these picture's outside but the weather did not cooperate. It has rained all day.
So I know that one of these projects represent the 60's but the quilt is make all with the Batiks fabric. I want to thank Madame Sam and Mary for all their work. I do so love doing these hops with them. Since I didn't have time to have a give away with my last hop I have decided to have one this time. All you have to do is leave a comment and a way of getting a hold of you and I will have a draw at the end of this hop. I had a little material left over from this project so here are two fat quarters of this Batiks material.
Hope everyone is able to join each one and see their great projects. Here is the list for the week. Have fun and cheer everyone on.
