Dreaming Under Dresdens!
Oh Happy Day!
The dresdens are finished!
Can you see me doing my happy dance?
I adore this quilt. Simply love it.
What started out as this
and has now become this.
After many months and starts and stops, this cheerful, happy quilt is complete. I took it on vacation with us last week and finally had time to finish it.
I only used my favorite fabrics and even hand quilted the circles with perle cotton.
You may recall this post about my intentions to keep this quilt for myself (Can you blame me? It's just so pretty and happy!) but the more I worked on it, the more it called out to me as the perfect quilt for my sweet girl.
After all, that is how it began- with her in mind- so it was only fitting that it should be hers in the end.
|You can see she put it right to use.|
The more I worked on it, the more I loved it, and the more I wanted her to have it.
Inspired by the quilt on the cover of Material Obsession, it's called Sweet Dreams and is by far the biggest quilt I've made.
Just shy of a twin at 55" x 76", it will sit on the end of her bed but I don't imagine it will stay there. It's rather perfect for snuggling on the couch, as a blanket for her picnic tea parties, or when she needs to build a fort.
The back is my favorite whimsical floral/butterfly print from Just Wing It and the binding is my favorite Amy Butler orange dot.
I hope this quilt will grow with her and be something special she loves forever as I loved making it for her.
