A Quilt for a Little Lady

Loving to make baby and kids quilt, I was so happy to make this one last month! Going through the pictures now feeels so good - little ones quilts are so special!

It was a special custom order for a little girl. - as colourful and as bugs-friendly as possible for a sunny kid who loves little bugs.

I started with a  calmer pallette and then went for the more vivid colours among the pile.

With a customer who trusted me to do what I like on this quilt, I tried to make it as simple as possible regarding the piecing, so that the appliques could pop and shine.  I was trying to add as many beautiful colours as possible and still keep it pretty simple - just squares, big patches that can be used to play with - place little toys on them, learn the colours, point the flowers, tackle the bugs.

The unexpected back - so detailed and fairy - almost nothing in common with the front, is actually something I try to achieve. It gets a two quilts effect in a single one - each side is a quilt of its own. This print looked like a perfect match/the embroidered label wording is erased on the picture/.

The lettering is her name - sunny and using a self-drafted font. What I like about directional designs and lettering is, the kid can easily figure which side is up and which - down, when using the quilt.

My first quilt was a play quilt for my kid and making a quilt for a little one feels so special to me - a thing a child will love and hug for years. I might have the chance to make one more lady quilt this year and I hope I will have the time to do so.

  1. Watch makers took the magnifier lens and placed it upside replica watches uk down on the bottom of the crystal, as opposed to on the top. By reversing the lens, to magnify in this new direction, the same effect is replica watches uk achieved without the bump on top of the crystal. You can see this feature on some of the more expensive watches. A few notable ones are the Zenith Defy series, the Louis Vuitton Tambour line, and the Chopard Mille Miglia line of replica watches models. This upside down magnifier lens feature is not limited to these models, and should be found on a number of newer watches. As time goes on, these new types of lenses are sure to appear on less expensive models. To achieve this upside down lens effect, there must be replica watches uk enough clearance between the face of the watch, and the crystal. With the trend in watches being larger in size, this is often not an issue, and the upside down lens is actually a bit smaller than would be needed on top of replica watches uk the crystal.
