Hugs & Kisses for Nita

The fabric which drew me into quilting was a Kate Spain design, called Verna.  I had collected various precuts and yardage, and decided to use some of it up.

This quilt is for my beautiful friend Nita.  She is fighting a huge battle, and will need lots of love and support.  The first surgery is done ... now onto the next phase of treatments.

The pattern is one I found at the Moda Bakeshop Here.  I did have to cut a couple of extra 10” squares to make an extra row, to make the circles symmetrical.

The backing is a yellow minkee I managed to score at a store which I usually do not shop at.  I am pleased with how it has quilted up.  Minimal quilting, around the diamonds, lets this quilt wrap you up snug and cozy.

The binding is a contrasting aqua stripes and dots I had in my stash.  I love it, and know that it will wrap her and keep her warm with all our love.

Get well, Nita OXOXO


  1. It is beautiful. Love the blue binding. Get well Nita.

  2. Now I can see why you were drawn to this line (which I have never seen before) but it is so lovely of you to make this for your friend and back it with warm minky.

  3. It's beautiful Caz! I hope Nita gets well soon.
