My entry? Going into the Favorite Bed Quilt is my Mermaid Lovey Quilt.
My sweet little girl needed to move up to a Big Girl bed, and to make it extra special (and less like getting kicked out of her crib) I wanted to make her a quilt. I was at a total loss of what to make though, until one day she pulled some mermaid fabric out of my stash and oooo'd and aaaaaaa'd over it. So I ordered more coordinating fabric and worked on a layout for a twin-sized quilt of approx 60" x 100".
Her quilt started out as a lot of triangles. Stacks and stacks of triangles:
That were arranged with fussy-cut centre blocks to form an ocean waves pattern:
That were eventually all pieced together (with a LOT of y-seams) and sashed with ruffled blue satin:
And bordered with mermaids frolicking with dolphins:
All to be quilted by her loving Mama in a wave/swirl pattern in the negative space:
I adore it. But more importantly, she does.
Thanks for stopping in to look :)
