I started this quilt when my daughter was 2 years old and moved into her big girl bed. She will be 7 years old next month!
I had a few issues making this quilt... namely Steam-a-seam lite that wouldn't cooperate... That's why it has taken so long... (That's my excuse and I am sticking to it!)
|Sorry about the fold marks!|
We are both very happy it is finally done!
|I love the quilted flowers and hearts!|
My mom worked her magic, quilting it with her Gamill. She used a pantograph pattern for this one.
I don't know if you can tell, but the background is big 15 inch white squares (I think). I sewed them together into four-patches and then did the machine appliqué.
I used a flannel for the back and a 50% bamboo/50% cotton batting. I think that is why the fold marks are still there.
I will wash it soon to give it that nice crinkled look but we just couldn't wait to FINALLY get it on her bed!
Go check out M-R's Canadiana Quilt (it's a replica of the Hudson's Bay blanket!)!
