Phew, I’m so fast! Look at me whipping out these quilts!
HA HA HA!! Just teasing! I didn’t make this quilt, although I wish I had. My mom made it! Isn’t it adorable?
She made it at our family quilt retreat. She wanted to donate it to my aunts Relay for Life drawing so she asked me to quilt it for her. This was the first time that I have quilted someone else’s project. Boy was that stressful! She just told me to quilt it how I wanted. I couldn’t decide, so I just went with the standard free motion stippling. I must say, I am still not a professional by any means, but my stitches are getting a lot better.
The backing she used was a purple polka dot flannel! FLANNEL! … For the backing! … What a great idea! I don’t know why I haven’t thought of this, especially with all the baby blankets I have made but I love this idea. It makes it so super soft and snuggly! And purple polka dots, how cute it that?
Each bug is an applique piece. (We learned how to do applique at the quilt retreat, so all of the quilts were applique.) And has embroidery for the faces. How adorable is this butterfly?
Well, this froggy might be slightly more adorable, but I can’t decide.
My mom is super talented and I love this quilt. Thanks Madre, for giving me the chance to quilt this for you!
Christina made these great bath puffs. She has such a talent for crochet and these are perfect. I’ve never thought to make these, but I think I might give them a try.
Thanks girls! You are the best! Oh, and I had to steal these pictures from your blogs, hope you don’t mind. Silly me, I forgot to take pictures of them before I shipped them to my aunt. I was just a little excited to send them to her.
