Great blanket! And how special that it came from scraps you found in your mother's attic. Very cool. Can't wait to see it with the shell edging.

We call those afgahns and they will last forever. My mom has a couple that have been around so long I don't know who made them anymore. the colours are so cheery.

Oh Corry! I love it!!! I so want to make one of these. My friend who I am teaching to quilt wants to be able to teach me something she says. So she is going to teach me to make granny squares. I just need to clear up some more old projects first as I have far too much in the works now. Seeing this makes me want to start today. What a great job you did and it is just so cheerful like a pretty old scrap quilt can also be.

Hugs en groetjes ~

Beautiful. I love the fact also that it came from scraps from your mother. It is like having a little of her with you. I have a quilt that my mother made and I cherish it so much. Hope you had a wonderful Easter.
