Custom Lap Size HST Quilt {A Finish!}

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


My customer's choice of half-square triangles with bright fabrics was perfect!  This quilt is in memory of my customer's daughter who passed away two years ago.  She was a paramedic who loved children, as testified by the fun prints on her scrubs.


This quilt is for my customer's son-in-law who lost his wife, so the backing is a masculine navy blue.


Another quilt in which I remembered to put a label!  I'm so loving my sew-in satin labels!  It just feels special to put my personal mark on a quilt.
