It seems that I’ve disappeared from the blogging world again. We are hoping to move to the mountains in a matter of weeks, so we have been busy making more repairs around the house, decluttering, and packing. More about that another time.
I wanted to show you a quilt I designed for my youngest grandson. He was born last August. I found this fabric at my LQS and fell in love with it and knew I wanted to use it for his quilt.
The fox and tree are raw-edge appliqued. And other than the background and the fox fabric I just had to have on the back, everything else is scraps. I quilted bamboo onto the background, and filled in the fox, tree, and leaves with free motion quilting.
Last but certainly not least, it’s somewhat hard to see, but in the tree trunk I embroidered my grandson’s initials. I really love that part!
I decided to enter this quilt into the Blogger’s Quilt Festival at Amy’s Creative Side. Head on over there and vote for all the wonderful quilts. There are lots of fun quilty prizes up for grab, so we are all super excited about it.
