View From My Window

Monday, October 3, 2022 — One down and one to go. Here’s the quilt I’ve made for my DIL, Laura.
She’s now a fan of Route 66, like her FIL and me. When our eldest asked me for a quilt for Laura, he suggested Route 66 as a theme. I didn’t have any Route 66 fabric so went online to see what I could find. The first thing to come up was this panel and I was sold on it. It brings back memories of the Route 66 souvenir shop we frequent whenever we visit Williams, AZ. It looks like a 50s malt shop inside, and its the only place I have found Route 66 pocket t-shirts, which Robert prefers.

Route 66 quilt for Laura W.

I have the other quilt ready for hand stitching of the binding. When I get it finished, I’ll take a photo and post it here.

Be safe, do take care of yourself and remember to tell those you love that you love them.

    Thanks for the photo. That is a most unusual fabric panel. You were fortunate to find it!

      Panels make up quicker than pieced tops, though I prefer putting pieces of fabric together to create a unique quilt. I have only used a ‘kit’ a couple of times in my life, preferring to select my own fabrics/pattern. Thanks!
