Happiness is a quilt finish on a Wednesday morning.
Following in the madness that was the #scrappytripalong I made this quilt for my 6 year old daughter. She has grown out of her baby quilt so this will be her big kid quilt.
With the fabrics that I originally pulled I needed to add a bunch more from my stash to add depth and contrast. The purple was an after thought, but I love it! Totally makes the quilt in my opinion, especially the darker pieces.
Can you see the dragonfly in the quilting?
My quilter, Lynn, did a beautiful job. She also quilted my daughter's name and a bunch of flowers into the quilt. You can imagine that my 6 year old loves all of it!
For the back I was trying to use up some stash. I had two princess prints from Alexander Henry's Once Upon a Time line that my daughter was in love with. I paired them with an orange polka dot from JoAnn's and a piece by Jennifer Paganelli for Free Spirit. I'm sure I got the Free Spirit piece on a clearance at my LQS. I've had it for a long while.
I just kind of color-blocked them together.
The binding is also a JoAnn's piece I had in my stash. Again, it was not part of the original plan, but came about after the quilt was done. I like that it highlights some of the fabrics in the quilt rather than blending in.
It feels good to have a quilty finish! It's been awhile for me...
I love this quilt, my daughter loves this quilt. Win-Win!
