A Quilt For College

While visiting my daughter’s house, I was happy to see her quilt again. I thought you might like to see it too.  Hayley was into Zebras at the time, and this is the design I used to make her a quilt to take to college. I bought some of the fabric from a website called Keepsake Quilting. This is a single bed size quilt; I machine pieced the top together, and hand quilted it myself.P1060300

This is the scallop pattern I used to quilt the zebra mid-section.

The corners all look like this.  The single zebra square is stitched in place with a button hole stitch done by hand.

The quilt label on the back reads:  Hayley, you are a joy to me!  I love you.  I will be thinking of you and wishing the very best for you always!  ~Mama

I think it is a cool blanket made with love for someone I was really going to miss not being home on a regular basis anymore!
