Emily is my adorable 2-year-old goddaughter/psudo-neice-but-not-really-she's-my-2nd-cousin.
And all my goddaughter/psudo-neice-but-not-really-she's-my-2nd-cousin deserve a quilt from me. Especially when I have parts of their sheets that I can put in it.
This quilt was a first for me. I took a block I like (I think it's called the Kitchen Woodbox) and enlarged it. I think the results turned out well. It was also my first time combining different materials AND using Ric-Rac for a border. LET'S TAKE A LOOK.
So here we have a grumpy looking picture of me. I look grumpy, because my husband sneak-attack took a picture of me. He sneaks up behind me and goes "HEY" and because I'm skeptical, I slowly turned my head, and look questionably. I actually just wasn't grumpy, it was more worried. ANYWHO, this is the quilt before I sewed on the corners. As you can see, it was supposed to be square.
And like any other awesome person would, I stuck some mighty pink Minky on the back. I thought it'd be a pain in the ass to sew with, but, hot damn, if that stuff isn't magical.
And here's my tiny goddaughter/psudo-neice-but-not-really-she's-my-2nd-cousin proudly showing off her new quilt. I think it was finished 47" x 45"? Rumor has it, she growls if you try to take it away from her. And won't sleep without it.
1½ pillow cases of Pottery Barn Kid's Hayley sheets.
A bunch of purple seersucker
Yellow polka dotted cotton
Mottled green cotton (husband proudly picked this one out)
2 packages of medium pink Ric-Rac
Her birthday is coming up. If I have time, I might attempt a matching pillow.
