“Grandma’s Charm” Eye Spy Quilt

Well, it’s taken me a bit longer than expected to get these pictures posted! It might have something to do with my new Droid X….Here’s the quilt that my sister and I made for my Grandma’s 90th birthday with 90 different fabrics.


We thought it would be a good idea to make it fun to look at by using bright colors and whimsical “eye-spy” fabric for her.  She is in a nursing home.  


It was great working with all the fabrics, half from my sister, and half from my stash.  Lots of different memories from quilts past.


It’s finished off with a poem that I actually wrote for her 80th birthday charm mini quilt. I think the squares were 1 inch finished.


My Mom asked us to make the quilt for my Grandma’s birthday along with the matching reversible kleenex box cover.  It was great to be able to be there for for my Grandma’s 90th birthday.  My Mom made it a very special day (and week) for her!

What an awesome gift. Love all the wonderful fabrics you used. My grandma turns 90 in December. I might have to copy your idea.
