Woolly Blanket Quilt

I finished my Woolly Blanket Quilt. The red section is made from old blankets that have been cut up into squares and sewn back together (this part was made by my mother. I found it in her sewing box after she passed away and wanted to make something beautiful with it). I finished it off with this lovely blue Woollen fabric I found at The Dancing Queen, interspersed with squares of the old blanket.
It's backed with an 70's sheet and the binding I made from scratch following Heather Bailey's Bind a Quilt tutorial. It's the very first time I've binded a quilt properly and Heather's instructions made it so easy. I've always found this a daunting task...but no longer! Thank you Heather.
It's so warm and snugly and I love it dearly. Finished just in time for the pending winter too.
