Description

My daughter asked for a quilt to snuggle with for Christmas.  She loves pink, so when I found some panels that were in non-traditional colors, I knew I had to buy them!  She loved them and begged for them to become her quilt, rather than a wall hanging for her room.  In the interest of time, I hand tied the quilt and did it in a funky pattern, based on the fabric, and not evenly spaced.  It is very non-traditional, but she loves it!!!

Really clever- it reminds me of a book with the pages open to all those whimsical designs- really neat!

Mymble Thank you!! I love that it has a holiday feel without screaming red and green.

Heffalump23 absolutely-nothing wrong with red and green but it is nice to think outside the box- especially for children- adorable photo of your daughter snuggled up in her quilt:)

True

This is a great quilt and I LOVE the picture of her with the book and the quilt!

True Thanks!! I had a lot of fun putting it together. It's funny, despite it being thrown together and not very technical, she loves it!!

I love it! So cute that she had specific requests. I'm sure she adores it just the same no matter how quickly you were able to make it! :)

Jessicalam Most of the things I make her are hand knit and take a while to make, so being able to make a quilt in just a few days (that she loves!) was music to my ears!!!

I bet!!

So so cute and the quilt isn't bad either! I bet she will wear the binding off from snuggling so much with it. Score mom!

Great quilt - and love the picture of her reading the Canadian Tire Magazine - the second I saw it I thought "Must be a Canadian!" (I'm in Canada too).

Terryt1955 Thanks!! I bought extra binding just in case and she's getting a kids sewing machine for Christmas, so I might know what sewing lesson #1 might be!!!

Oh my I just came back to look at the pictures and realized I didn't even see the one with the adorable fabric for the backing. LOVE text fabric! Who makes it? Next year I'll be making my grandson a Christmas quilt so I need to start stashing now, right!

Terryt1955 I bought it at FabricLand in Canada. It is labeled, "Over the River" by Barbara Jones of Quiltsoup for Henry Glass & Co. Pattern #5624. I know it came in a few colors, but I don't remember which ones. Hope that helps!!
