Blast from the past.

This quilt is home now.
It's been away for THREE years with my daughter at school.
It's a soft and old fashioned looking quilt.

They're both home now for a while.
I DID wonder if this soft quilt would
hold up to college dorm life!

You can see I used what I had......
Even the whites are not all the same.
I LOVE the challenge of USING what I have
when making quilts!
'Cause I have a LOT.

I used the bigger pieces on the back.

My daughter must like this quilt....
She's still using it!


  1. A great comfort 'make me feel like home' quilt for a dorm quilt. It looks like it has been well loved.

  2. Awwwwwwww, it's a great quilt Beth.

  3. What's not to like about such a beautiful quilt! I love making "stash only" quilts... and yours turned out great!
