Frank's Quilt

My brother-in-law, Frank, has not been feeling well - lungs, heart, etc and he is always feeling cold.  I decided to make him a warm lap quilt for when he lies on the couch.  I had bought this material when Don & I traveled to Florida, and it seemed to be calling his name.

This is Pacific Reflections, a Cindi McCracken Design - pack of 2.5" batik strips - design features 2 blocks: light block with medium/dark centre & dark block with light/medium centre.  It was 58" x 60".

I rented the long-arm quilting machine in Lockport and backed it with minky (for warmth).  I also sewed up a pillowcase in matching colours.

I gave him the quilt the end of October 2017 - hopefully he is actually using it!
