When my third son left home he took this quilt with him. Just now got a picture.
I made this quilt about 18 years ago. I had hand quilted each boy a quilt but did very little piecing.
My husband had just switched jobs and we were soooooooooooooooo poor. The black is a black sheet, and I used a black sheet for the back. This is a queen sized quilt. I made it for our bed. I used scraps from clothes I had made for the boys and myself.
I did not have a pattern. I did not use a book... I just used the quilt my grandmother had made for me as a guide to making the blocks.
I used a school ruler, pencil .... I designed the quilt because I loved black at the time. So I sat for hours drawing and making the templates. I used an old embroidery hoop to hand quilt it. If you look close, there are hearts in each of the black blocks.
I even used an old comforter for the batting...it is funny because it buldges in spots. Remember I told you we were poor and I had to do this as cheaply as I could. Later I made a sky blue ruffle for the bed, pillow shams and cases. It looked pretty good if you asked me. We had this on our bed for years. I tell my son to take care of this quilt because those scraps have a history.
