First Son's Quilt

Connie constructed this quilt out of clothing that had belonged to her first son and some of his cousins. It's a collection of memories of the early 70's and will make a great little quilt for a granddaughter or other family member.

Even seersucker fabrics are included to give the whole thing a great visual and textures.

White thread was used.

The pink borders really show the Sticky Buns quilting pattern.

Very nice!

The warm flannel backing!
