This is the project that took up the largest chunk of my time over the past 2 week. The quilt is for my father in law. I knew I wanted to make a quilt for him when we found out how seriously sick he is. What I didn't know then is that one of the side effects of the treatments he is receiving is that you get very sensitive to cold. So it turns out this quilt will be not only a gift for moral support but also a great help during the treatments!
When I started I didn't have a particular design in mind other than I wanted to put together all kinds of shades of blue. There are 5 shades of blue on each side. At this point it is hard to call one side is the top and one is the bottom, I love how both sides turned out. The blue in my mind represent hope and the square shape strength.
The quilting is very simple, just in the ditch. I think it works quite well with the solid fabrics I picked out
This past weekend we had a very spring like weather and after sweeping our back patio I took advantage of the lovely light to take some pictures that show the true colors of the quilt.
I believe my father in law will like it - even though his favorite color is green
