When I was in Louisiana my dad informed me that he needs a new quilt for his bed. His isn’t big enough and he keeps “losing” it during the night. All he told me was that he wanted something with red in it. I’m thinking I might make this one but do you think it looks too “Christmasy”?
It’s just a sampler type with a simple border but I love the sashing. It needs to be a queen size. This one as drawn is 82″ x 99″. The queen mattress is 60″ x 80″. I actually like a square quilt on my queen bed. We don’t pull it over the pillows. About 98″ x 98″ works good for me so I may end up making Dad’s quilt 99″ x 99″. He also complained about it sliding off the bed so I think I might use a lightweight flannel for the backing and then use a very thin, maybe wool batting. That won’t be too heavy for summers in Louisiana (with the a/c running) but the flannel backing will keep the quilt from sliding off the bed.
Here’s another way I could color it but I think I like the green and red better. Thoughts??
