Before Jules’ illness, we traveled quite a bit. When we were away, I liked to leave my mom with a project to occupy her time in our absence. I would cut and press while she sewed. Then I would baste the quilt sandwich together for her to hand quilt. She had large amounts of several fabrics so we specifically looked for some two-color patterns. The above quilt is one of my favorite rectangle quilts which we created together from Successful Scrap Quilts from Simple Rectangles by Judy Turner and Margaret Rolfe.
The one below was made to brighten up her bedroom in winter. We used a thicker batting for it. We actually ran out of the orange interior fabric so there is one rectangle missing in each corner. I guess I should have looked for a similar fabric to fill that space but I’m sure I was working with a deadline. Too late now and it looks great on her bed anyway.
