Happy Wednesday everyone! I actually have an excel spreadsheet that has lists of ideas I have for this blog (My word is not working on this computer…no idea why…). I looked at my list this morning and I decided to show you all the quilt that I made for my daughter Cedi.
Cedi received MANY MANY fabulous quilts when she was born. The beautiful one from Barb and Katrina, the amazing Jungle one from her Grandma and a gorgeous one from her aunt Karma (I have yet to feature it but don’t worry…it’s coming).
I also wanted to make her a fabulous quilt but I love to do things differently. I decided that I would make her a brightly colored fun rag quilt! I am hoping this is going to be the one she carries around until it literally is rags. Right now it’s her bedtime quilt.
They say that bright colors help to stimulate babies and small children…well, I made her a bright one! I didn’t do just squares on this rag quilt either…I mixed in diagonals and split pieces and mini squares all together to create something even more fun to look at.
I also did free motion quilting within each block. This helped me practice for when I had bigger pieces to quilt.
It’s a very warm and cozy quilt that I hope she continues to love for years to come!
