King Arthur's Castle


While quilting may be fun, and blogging may be enjoyable, 
You may have noticed that I have not blogged much
and I can tell you that I have not quilted much.

One project is finished - King Arthur's Castle.



I am entering this in the 
Original Design

It's a long story - I refer you to my daughter's blog if you are interested.

My daughter's Mother-in-Law (who happens to be one of my very best friends) suggested that we make a quilt for our grandson-to-be, Arthur.  We quickly thought of making a castle.

I designed the castle on graph paper and pieced it.
We made its door like a draw bridge, and made the whole quilt able to hang on a tension rod over a doorway... so our granddaughter could play in the castle.




 Note the black windows on top: they have pockets to hold princesses, and Winnie the Pooh.
Note the real windows on the bottom portion.





Note the FLOWERS ("shra shra" in 19-month old language)




And the lovely leaves sewn by the other Grandma.


And I am very late- so I will write more later! Cathy H
