A Little Floral Lap Quilt and !!! Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

Happy Happy Friday!!!!

We were invited to a persons house for a Anniversary dinner of our Lions Club. And the Lady who invited us has this AMAZING house.... She even gave us a tour. I was trying to think of a Hostess Gift to take, as she really went out of her way. She had 20 of us to feed and host....

Anyways - every time I see her she is wearing something flowery. So... in one of my piles  ( See I really am working on them) was ( were?)  6 inch floral squares.

I thought , Small little lap quilt, or even something she could keep in the car for winter.....

I stitched them all up, added a border, flannel Floral backing and:

Ta Da!!!

I quilted it with flowers too ;-)

Isn't that  pretty Flannel backing?

I did wash it too, I think I like to wash them to make sure nothing is going to happen to them - and they are ready to use.

I gave it to her, and then she said... someday you should see my antique quilts.... Okay!!! I'm in!!

So!! What is you favorite 5 inch square pattern/quilt block to make?  My go to is the Churn Dash... but I need more in my favorite list as another quilter just gifted me a LOT of 5 inch square packs!!

Sounds like a really neat house to visit. How kind you are to stitch an appropriate gift like this. The finished piece is so lovely - I like the florals very much.

A small quilt makes a wonderful gift. Hope you get a chance to see her antique quilts some day.

Nicely done! That flannel backing is pretty. I always think plaid when I think flannel. LOL! Your quilted flowers are beautiful.

What a sweet quilt to gift to her. I hope you can get back to see her antique quilt collection sometime soon!

Kate said...

You got rid of a pile and made a cute gift. That's definitely a win/win. Good luck with the pile sorting.

5" charm squares can be used for a Disappearing Four-Patch block. The block will finish to 8". Dot
