I love meeting my ALYofF goals especially today as I celebrate my 30's retro, charm pack slice-n-dice baby quilt finish. It ended up being 38"x 38" square. Perfect size to cuddle baby in or lay down for nap time don't ya think.
I quilted it using a Butterflies Loops & Swirls pantograph in cream thread.
I like the contrast of the green backing and green polka-dot binding.
And do ya like this little gal with her swishing ribbon tail??
She was as easy as 1,2,3 to make!
First, I just took a piece of the elephant fabric and blew it up on a copy machine. Then, I traced her onto the shiny side of a piece of freezer paper and ironed her to the cream fabric. Finally, I then cut her out a 1/4" larger than the template and appliqued her onto the quilt. I embellished her with an orange running stitch using a perle cotton thread.
This was so fun to make! It will be a baby gift to my teaching partner. They are expecting their baby girl in December! I hope they use it a ton. Thanks for stopping by! I'm linking up with everyone else at ALYofF to share our September finish & others on my linky page.
