A Toasty Quilt

 I made a Christmas present for my wonderful mother-in-law, Ann.  She was without power for a few weeks last year during and after Hurricane Sandy.  I keep picturing her freezing in her own home and I knew I needed to make her a quilt!  So here it is.


I really enjoyed quilting this.  I went around with each layer of color and tried different stitches. Some swirls, some straight stitching, I even did some feathers!




The back is a rainbow with more gray.  I am still not done with the gray, I'm afraid.  It is my favorite neutral.  I just keep collecting more, too.  It's an illness.









So now Ann has her quilt to keep her warm and cozy, just in case another hurricane hits New Jersey!
