Granny's quilt

Having quilty friends is awesome and usually the mail that you receive is something that you are excited about right away -- whether it be a coveted fabric or fun notion that you've been wanting to try, but sometimes you get things that initially don't seem to fit in. 

For me this was a box of Fig Tree fabric a friend sent me unexpectedly. I'm not into the muted tones or modern primitive fabrics (is that a thing). SO I hung onto it for a while trying to figure out a project for it, and it wasn't until I was making a bee block last year that I finally decided how I wanted to use this fabric. 

We were making Plus Side blocks from Riley Blake and i liked how simple the block was to put together and it showcased the fabrics in a line well. 

My husband has a grandmother that is still living and I knew that these would be a great quilt for her. I worked on making them at stash bash earlier this year and got them assembled at the girls weekend over labor day. 
I made the backing from the leftover fabric. This was an easy one for longarming on and now it's time to wait to gift it to her for Christmas. 
A finish for the 4th quarter
