I finally finished all of the girls' quilts this evening, and what a relief it is to know they are done. As I've said before, it can be a little tedious at times to have to make three of everything when it comes to the kids. Finishing the first version is usually pretty fun. The second one is okay. By the time I hit the third, I'm very ready to move on to something else. Bunny's quilt was the first one to make it out of the dryer, so that's the one I have pictures of tonight. My husband was able to hold it up for one quick shot in front of the house before it started whipping around in the wind.
The quilt is made entirely of prints from Lizzy House's Castle Peeps line along with a simple white muslin. For each of these quilts I just used a solid white for the backing since they're going to spend their lives draped on the beds anyway.
I did a little bit of hand stitching around three of the wonky stars in a royal blue thread. I think it adds a little interest to the quilt top, and I like the way it highlights a few of the stars. I'll have pictures of Mouse's quilt tomorrow...
The setting sun tweaked the colors in this picture a bit, but here's my first block in the hand pieced doll quilt. I love this little churn dash, made with a dot print from Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket and some Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt. Can't wait to finish a few more of these!
