Did I ever tell you about the quilt I made for my then 2 year old granddaughter last Christmas? I think maybe I forgot to do so.
The quilt was made using a charm pack. I alternated the charm squares with some pink print from the collection. I used the same print for the border. I sewed giant turquoise rick rack along the seam lines. I used another fabric from the collection for the backing:
The fabrics made charming little pictures all over the quilt top. Brother and Sister Bear:
… Papa Bear:
As you may recall, Mama always wore a dress made of turquoise polka dot fabric, so that is what I used for the binding. The binding is the normal narrow width on the front…
… but it is wider on the back. I thought that would be more like a “blankie” for my little granddaughter.
I had some of the backing fabric left, so I quilted it and made a little travel duffel bag to store the quilt and to use for necessities when visiting Grandma! Note the turquoise polka dot zipper pull:
All this was a lot of fun to make!
Just so darn cute!!!!!
Thank you, Marlene.
Oh my, I LOVE this!!!
That little granddaughter doesn’t know yet, how lucky she is to have such a clever grandma!
Thank you, Linda!
