Ricky's quilt

I gave this scrap quilt in yellow, orange, and red to my sister.  At the same time, I made one for her husband, Ricky.  His is the same pattern, only cool colors.  Dee Dee's was custom quilted--I quilted Ricky's with the edge to edge design Drip by Willow Leaf Studios. 
His backing is made from a strip of extra block centers and cornerstones left over from piecing the front, and strips of yardage in the same cool colors.
My mom passed away a couple years ago.  I can never repay Dee Dee and Ricky for taking care of her daily needs while I was too far away to be of any help, but these quilts were a small way of letting them know how much I appreciated it.
