This quilt was a complete pleasure to make! I've given you a few sneak peeks at it during the process (here and here) and decided I couldn't keep you in suspense any longer. ;o)
|I cut 5" squares from my stash along with some background rectangles at 5" x 9 1/2" and threw in some layer cake low volume fabrics (which were trimmed to 9 1/2" square). I wanted the mix in background sizes to add more interest.|
It's a lap-sized quilt made especially for a sweet little girl that loves horses
|Sarah Jane's "Summer Ride" from her Wee Wander line is the fabric I based the palette for this quilt from.|
and it is filled with a wide assortment of low-volume fabrics - making it an "I Spy" quilt.
|When I gift this quilt, I'm thinking of adding a card with a list of things for the recipient to look for on her quilt... things like safety pins, strawberries and pinwheels! ;o)|
A quilt for her to enjoy making up stories about as she explores all the fabrics in it, as much as she may enjoy hearing stories while cuddling under it.
I hope she will enjoy the festival of colour, while tracing small fingers over those quilted circles.
|Kona in Petal was used for the backing to allow the quilting design to really stand out.|
Most of all, I hope this quilt will remind her that she is loved.
|"You Are Loved" quilt.|
This quilt was inspired by several other pixelated heart quilts...
Each one is so gorgeous! How could I not make one, too? ;o)
I'm linking up my latest finish with Amanda Jean's
and with Kim's
