Quilt Quiz:

Q: Favorite Color?
A: Green (but orange is my secret favorite – I’ve just loved green so long that it’s hard to know if it’s replaceable)

Q: Name you favorite quilt?
A: Hmmmm…depends on the project or season

Q: Name the quilt that gives you the most utility?
A: Easy…a yellow and white quilt my mom gave me 15-20 years ago. It’s lives on my bed or the chair in my room. It was perfect for covering kids when they “stopped by” for the night or to take in the car. This yellow and white quilt has been washed repeatedly and is snuggly and soft. It was never intended to be my favorite, but it just might be because of all the use I have gotten out of it. This quilt was pieced from leftovers and given to me by my mom because she did not need another quilt hanging around. I adore this quilt! I love the connection it gives me to my mom and the utility it provides.

After many years of using the yellow and white quilt, I decided to make a pattern so that I could make this quilt for friends and family. One aspect of the quilt that I really like is the size and how it is accommodating for so many different uses. It measures approximately 47″ x 56″.

The pattern is available in the November/December 2018 edition of Modern Patchwork.
