A woman at worked asked me to do this for her granddaughter who is 6 yrs old. The pattern is called Disappearing 9 Patch and made from fabrics bought at Walmart and JoAnn's. Kinda cute for a little girl...
Quilting is truly something I love to do - it's also therapeutic!!
The lady I work w/ picked the 2 prints out - they have butterflies in them. I picked everything out from there after asking what the girl's favorite colors were. I talked it over w/ the woman from work.
She has seen other things that i have done, so she pretty much gave me carte blanche to do this.
The finished size is 58x72.
I do have a quilt frame that I use. It's about 24x36 w/ collapsible legs that I bought almost 20 yrs ago at a quilt shoe. Perfect size to leave set up and yet not get in the way.
This took me about 3 months to do. Now - I will also preface this w/ I have my summers off, so I was able to work more on it than I do when school is in session.
This is a beautiful quilt and such a keepsake. I love quilts and own many made by my grandmothers. I've always wondered if it is a common practice to add your name or initials and a date to your quilts, sort of like you would sign a painting?
Georgia Peach - I always put a label on the back to the person and sign and date it. I try to think of the info someone would want to know if the quilt ended up at the Goodwill sometime down the road. Most people who would pick it up will treasure knowing the history.
