Buzzings from a quilter who bumbles her way through life!
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
Here's the flamingo quilt for my granddaughter. I have binding to sew on, but that is the easy part. I had all of this fabric in my stash already. I love the Amy Butler print so much, I haven't used it until now. The flamingo is applique. I also added some detail on the wings from the border print. I backed it with a pink, fuzzy minky that she will adore. I also knew she loved puffy quilts, so I used a polyester batting and minimum quilting. (I've never used polyester before. It was kind of a "dirty word" in most quilt guilds I've attended. I think it is fine for this application!)
So now she has her tropical bedspread AND her quilt with a flamingo in the middle, just like she drew out for me!
Hopefully, I will be able to post pictures as we get her room together, but I will be having fun with both grandkids for the next two weeks. I am taking fabric for my grandson's room, too, but I wasn't as sure of what he wanted. He is 3, so I need to be there to figure it out!
California, look out.......here I come!

Good luck with the 3-year old - my granddaughter (also 3) has very definite ideas of what she wants in a quilt, so hopefully your grandson will be able to steer you well!!
