Finally finished the quilt........

I finally got Mya's quilt finished. I was going to make her a Tu-Tu, but haven't had the time to go and get the material, so thought I'd make her a quilt with some material I had in my stash.

I must say I am pleased with how it turned out. I love the pink's and cream, just right for a little girl. The front of the quilt is in cotton and the back is flannel, so it is nice and warm. It's around 36" square.

The front of the quilt:

The back, I used some leftover flannel from my niece's quillow:

Finally a close up of the back with the label I put on it.

Lets hope she likes it............

Very nice! I've always admired people that made quilts. I sew but never had the patience for trying a quilt with all those small pieces.

Very nice! My wife's a quilter and it took her two years to finish the last one. A lot of work; well done.

The quilt is beautiful. I used to do patch work when I was younger but ended up with so many patch work things that I gave it up.

How beautiful your quilt is. Quilting is something I have always secretly wished I could do but honestly, I think it intimidates me so I have never done it. I mean I go to the fair each year and I see those huge beautiful quilts and I just stand there and say "No way! lol

That is beautiful Gill - you are a clever lady. I would love to be able to do something like that. The label is a lovely idea too.

I am impressed. What is a quillow?

Connie Walsh said...

Absolutely gorgeous.

A quillow is a quilt that transforms into a pillow. When it is a quilt there is a place for feet, when it is a quillow, it looks good on the bed...
