The garden has been keeping me busy but I have actually been able to finish a quilt. (applause, yay, and finally!) My granddaughter loves all thing pink (sometimes purple), sparkly, and princess. When our Wal-Mart here in map-dot discontinued its fabric department and all of their fabric was on super close-out, I bought..and....bought...and bought....with quilting in mind, of course. Some of the fabric that I purchased, I knew that I would be using for my grandchildren. So after sorting through, I set aside some of the pinks/purples for a quilt for my granddaughter. (Other fabrics I set aside for my grandson. His quilt is in progress.) After I stewed ( which I know I go overboard on that.) about a design and enlisted the input from my daughter, this is the result.
I don't know if it can be seen very well, but a castle is quilted in the center, flowers, crowns and the word princess is quilted in the borders.
I realise that the quilting is not the best but believe it or not it IS better than the last time. I owe that to the thread ( Aurifil) and hints from sister and blogger friends. The whole time I was working on the quilt, my granddaughter would ask..."Is that for me? Is it my princess quilt?" I guess she likes it.
Now on to the next one......for my grandson who likes all things with wheels!
