Granny's Quilt

Delilah by Tanya Whelan
My Granny has been saying for the last year that she loves the quilts I have made and would love one but she just wouldn't get the use or "wear" out of it!  She turns 80 soon so I decided that I wanted to make her one for her birthday.  I love Tanya Whelan fabrics and have been trying to think of an excuse to buy some of her newer range - Delilah.  I thought it would be the perfect range for my Granny as its got lots of lovely flowers in pinks and greens but is still fresh and modern.

What attracted me to quilting is all the fabulous fabric and I really wanted to choose a design that showcases all the gorgeous fabrics in this range and wouldn't take too long to make as it would need to be double bed sized and my time limit was tight (as usual!).  This is my inspiration mosaic:

1. wonderland baby quilt, 2. Summer Blooms Quilt, 3. postcards from the park quilt, 4. Mia's Quilt, 5. oddysea bricks quilt (1), 6. New Image23, 7. birthday quilt, front, 8. Color Brick Quilt Front, 9. Hushabye Quilt

Created with fd's Flickr Toys

I decided to base it on The Road Trip Quilt from Cluck Cluck Sew
