Design Wall Monday, 1/3

I know that this isn't on my design wall. Nothing is on my design wall. But I wanted to show off the quilt that I finished for my Granma for her Christmas and birthday present. She was aware that I was making her a quilt and my aunt showed her how to get to my blog which is why I didn't show the final quilt before Christmas.

I think she likes it!

And 3 of my cousins were happy to hold the quilt up for us.

And here it is on her bed. She is already planning for valances and a bed skirt and has put in an order for a couple of pillow shams.
