It's the end of the year, and I have about 4 quilts that I finished this year and have still not shown on this blog. Two of them were Christmas gifts, so that's my excuse there, but mostly I just haven't made the time to blog them or even take pictures. This quilt was finished this SUMMER! It went straight to my daughters bed before I even had a chance to admire it.
My daughter needed/wanted a new quilt for her bed, and I had collected princess fabric that she loved, so we used them.
It took me a while to decide on a pattern. I think I cut into the fabric 2 or 3 times before finally deciding on this pattern. I believe I first spotted it on pinterest.
It's a generous twin size and my daughter loves it. I like it too. The one thing I wish I had done differently would have been to use a background fabric(black dot on cream) that was whiter rather than creamy. But I had that fabric on hand and I really wanted dots. I guess it gives it an antique-y feel.
I used this older blue Heather Bailey print that I have had for a while (found it on sale for $6/yard). This print is one of my favorites for backing. I've used it several times, but this is the only one I can specifically remember.
bound in pink scallops. (I love this print so much)
quilted in an egg shell pattern, this was the perfect quilt to use this pattern. I didn't have to mark at all, and it almost turned out perfect. The two inch squares were the perfect guide.
Here's a fun little tid-bit. These cute fabrics are by Ann Kelle, called Girl Friends, and they make an appearance often in different fabric. My daughters think they are so cute.
This one particular friend looks EXACTLY like one of my daughters friends (from Colorado). I mean, exactly. The glasses, the dark hair, bobbed, the short bangs. Exactly. When I first saw it I asked my daughter who this princess looks like and she knew immediately. KATIE. So we like to try to find Katie in the princess quilt.
