My granddaughters' school had a benefit auction. This was my donation. I loved making it! I had watched Jenny's curved log cabin tutorial, and I was hooked! The fabric was a fat quarter bundle I had purchased on ebay for a few dollars. So happy with how it turned out!
Mama & Baby Elephants for a Baby Girl quilt
A very dear friend had a baby boy two years ago that did not survive. A new Surprise last Christmas, and they are pregnant again this time with a baby girl. This cute quilt and two burp cloths are for Melissa & her new baby girl. The fabric is Olive's Flower Market by Moda with a flannel backing. I stitched both sides of the jumbo ricrac to make sure it stays put after many washings. The applique for the two elephants were quick and fun as well as for the balloons. The embroidery was quick. I added the "Minnie Mouse" buttons on the balloons and buttons for the elephant's eyes. The Pattern "Mommie & Me is by Collette Belt.
More Later Alligator
I received a request for a custom quilt for a baby boy. I absolutely love this darling fabric by Sandy Gervais "Later Alligator" and have used it on two previous quilts.The background fabric is "Hooray" by Patrick Lose. I Used my favorite quilt pattern Mode "Love" with added fabric on top and bottom to make a crib size quilt. The prairie points are fun and easy to make and add so much whimsy. The bright colors intrigue little boys minds. I made two burp cloths with some yellow flannel and a diaper changing pad with triple batting with left over charms. I backed it with blue minky per the request. They absolutely loved the quilt!
I wanted to make something to hang in the glass in my front door to celebrate the arrival of Spring. After diving into my scraps, I found enough to make one piece 3 tulips wide and another piece two tulips wide (just to hang in a bedroom or something). Anyway, three wide was too wide for the door, so I ended up making a trio. Everything was cut from scraps except the background fabric and the binding.
