Hi! Remember me? Wow, time has flown by since my last post. I have been quite busy and have a lot to tell you about.
As I told you before, I am now offering longarm machine quilting services and I have been quilting for others. I haven't been too busy, just busy enough and I must say that I am really enjoying it. But what I have been really busy doing since I last blogged is finishing two commissioned quilts for my friend's daughters.
Today I would like to share with you one of those quilts. It is for a 4 year old little girl who just loves the Disney princesses. Her mother asked me to make a quilt just with the dresses. She told me which princesses she wanted.
I bought the pattern from Chi Town Stitching on Etsy. My daughters had lots of fun helping me pick the fabrics for the dresses and loved watching me make each one.
I had so much fun making this quilt. Who doesn't love princesses? Here are some of my favorite dresses:
I quilted a lovely pattern on it with some hearts in a soft pink thread. I think it adds beautiful texture to the quilt.
The backing is a Disney fabric featuring a few of the princesses. It is so nice and soft. My mom bought it for me last winter when she was down to the States. I hadn't even started the quilt back then so unfortunately I didn't have enough. I just ended up adding a strip of the pink polka dots I used for the outer border to the bottom edge of the backing. I think it looks okay.
I used the fabrics from the sashing and border for the binding. I think it makes it look a little fun and whimsical.
She will be getting it for Christmas and I can't wait to see her reaction when she opens the box. I had so much fun making this quilt!
Next week I will share with you her sister's pink quilt. Be warned, there will be a lot of pink in that next post!
