Quilt 130 - Karen's Quilt from Grandma

50 x 75"

A few posts ago I mentioned I had scanned a picture thinking it was a quilt my Grandma made for me when I was little. Well, this is my quilt! It was hand quilted by my Grandma (and I suspect some aunts, too) when we got back from Spain where I was born. I think I'm about 2 years old in this picture and am obviously loving my new bed!

It has a flannel back and I used it until I was 13 or so. At that point, the back was getting so worn there were holes in it. I was not very happy when we had to put it away, so my lovely Mom made me another quilt with flannel on the back. She hand quilted it and everything! It was pink and gray to match my very stylish 80s bedroom. Thanks Mom!
