If you've been following me on Instagram these past few months, you would have seen the beginnings of these two quilts. I was commissioned to make quilts for two adorable little girls in South Africa. It was difficult to find just the right quilt pattern, but I finally found a photo over at Patchwork and Play. So I sent an e-mail to find out more information, and Susan kindly provided me with some information on the quilt she designed.
Here is the purple quilt. I ♥ these quilts.
Star and loop free motion quilting in purple variegated thread.
And here is the green quilt -- with a small purple star and piece of purple binding.
More star and loop free motion quilting with green variegated thread.
The quilts arrived in South Africa today. I was holding breath hoping that they would love the quilts.
The quilts finish at 72 x 84 inches (12-inch blocks with a 6 x 7 block layout).
I under-estimated how much time it would take to cut the fabric and piece all the stars. I cut it very close to my deadline. But I had a lot of fun making these quilts, and I hope the girls will use them for many years to come. Someday, I hope the meet the girls in person, but until then, I will watch them grow up through Instagram.
