Penny Patch Finish

Success!  Completed just in time to deliver to my mom during our visit with her in the hospital, my Penny Patch Quilt was a thrilling finish for me.

It is a lap-sized quilt with simple cross-hatch quilting based on the QAL at Stiched in Color. I really enjoyed using so many neutrals so those pops of purple and teal really come out of the quilt.  I back the quilt in a fun flannel combo of purple chevrons and that fun little bird print.

Thankfully my mom's stay at the hospital was mostly successful as well.  Her cardiologist is hopeful that this new medication will work for her and she will be able to avoid surgery.  Thank you all for your support.

  2. Michele it turned out beautifully! You are right about the neutrals making a good base for the purples and teal. Best of all your Mom had a good report.
