Even with the blues, this definitely reads very much 'girly'. :) Those mermaids are so cute.
This is darling! And I agree with AllPatchedUp , the blue is a nice addition. Besides if it was too pink you'd have to call it Pepto Bismo! Good luck on your move and how exciting that you get to plan a new sewing room!
What delightful fabric choices! It is "girl" without being over the top. Lucky baby!
What a great quilt...love it and agree girly without being over the top.
Thanks! I'm actually sad I'll be giving it away as I've really come to like it! I can see how much more I've grown/learnt in the few weeks since completing my first and this one!
I think this is lovely! Remember that handmade doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful. If people want perfection they can go to Pottery Barn and get the same blanket everyone else has. So try to be easier on yourself about the nitpicky things. :)
If you're uncomfortable charging for it, I think charging for materials is a good place to start, but you worked hard on it and it's beautiful so it wouldn't be out of line to add in for labor. I know some people figure out what their time is worth and then how long it took to make, then multiply that and add it in with the material cost.
Thanks, +Kritiananne. I'm trying to think of it that way!
This is a lovely girly baby quilt. Love the mermaid fabric you have used.
Don't you just love then it ends up being perfect!!
Adorable- and dittos on the perfection issue- just go to any upscale "boutique" type store ( the kind you find especially at vacation spots) and you'll see "handmade" items from all over the world- we ooh and ah at them-and they are great but a close look will show they aren't "perfect" either.
Anyway...its really lovely- do you know the name of the mermaid fabric- I know a little girl it would be perfect for!
Mymble the selvage says "Ack!" and "Merry Mermaids". I can't find too much about it on the internet, but I hope that helps a little
I heard another story today how the little girl had an accident and the quilt needed to be washed. That night it was hanging up to dry and she refused to go to bed until she could take her quilt. So adorable
Joke Thanks- will start hunting- and the story is too sweet- you know she is loving that quilt forever:)))
Joke, this is so pretty; love the fabric and your binding is just great.
This is such a pretty and happy quilt!!!
Joke - Update- Found the Merry Mermaids at JoAnn's- Thanks for the info, I was so happy to find it:)
Will do...I have a vague idea ...thinking of circles of some kind but that's as far as I've gotten
Nice fabrics, colors, and I love the title.
Love the scrappy look and the mermaids are adorable...what a lucky little girl!
So pretty and fresh! You did a wonderful job and who doesn't love mermaids?!!
Love the pattern with the prints! Really nice, great scrappy look! :)
