Birthday present for my Grandma

This weekend is my grandmother’s birthday. She turns 100. She has asked that no one give her gifts to celebrate her birthday, but I really wanted to give her something I made.

Since I’m completely obsessed with making dresdens these days, I wanted to make one for her. And since she is moving into a new house, I wanted to give her something bright and colorful for her bedroom.

Using my stack of colorful materials, I picked 10 colors, a grey for the background and then black for the binding.

I chose the order of colors for my petals and then went to work pinning in place and sewing.


I love it. I think it’s a perfect present for her. Since she is someone who has sewn for most of her life, I think she’ll like that I sewed this and forget that she really didn’t want anything at all.

  1. This is AWESOME! I cannot imagine a more perfect housewarming/100th birthday present for your grandmother. She is going to love it.

    (And of course I’m in love with your color choices!)

      1. And of course you will be telling her her great-granddaughter’s plan for making her something!
