I saw this cheery flannel fabric in a quilt kit and fell in love with it. It could be used for a boy or a girl. I didn’t care for the pattern that was chosen for the kit but I ended up buying it because they didn’t have any more of these fabrics on the bolt. The kit was for a queen size quilt so I should be able to finesse it into 3 twins by adding a few complementary fat quarters. I completed the first one last fall – a rag quilt that I donated to a silent auction fund raiser for the Parkland Riding Club. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it finished.
This is the second one. My cousin’s son just became a Dad on 2013MAY22 to a beautiful baby girl named Kassidy. I guess that makes her my second cousin…twice removed. I created a personalized label for it with a picture of Kassidy just minutes after birth. I hope they like it.
I am trying to learn how to free motion quilt. I challenged myself to use FMQ designs that I had never tried before. I settled on feathers and baptist fan.
I backed it with a solid white fabric. I like the look of all the white on white FMQ designs on the back…it reminds me of a whole cloth quilt.
