I found the pattern on the Moda Bake Shop, Easy Pezzy Crib Quilt. by Allysa at Pile O Fabric. i have been wanting to do a simple squares quilt, being impressed with the dramatic results seen from others. Given the nature of this fabric (yikes!), I thought a simple pattern would work great to highlight the fun fabric. The rectangle for the name was a nice addition. The quilt is small enough that one cut of fabric works perfectly for the back, no piecing required. I quilted this with a 1/4" allowance on both sides of the seams with some smallish stippling to highlight the letters. I am not super happy with the machine applique of the letters...my first attempt. I just purchased a book recommended by the wonderful Nicole at Mama Love Quilts on machine applique that I am bringing with me on this weeks trip to California (I know, again to the Left Coast!).
Most importantly, the party was so much fun! Savanna greeted us at the door:
Savanna has the same beautiful eye lashes as her aunt (my son's lovely wife)!
My husband and I with the birthday girl who was an amazing good sport with all the people, cameras, and Seuss-acle excitement!
Another trip to California, another quiet week at KayakQuilting! Rest assured, all this airplane time is perfect for percolating quilt ideas! Have a great week!
