Another successful rummage sale is done and over! Now I can get back to the business of crafting again.
Today I'd like to share one of two (almost) identical bed quilts I made for my granddaughters several years ago for Christmas. I have two granddaughters, Hailey and Bridget. Hailey is the oldest of the two sisters by one year. The girls share a room and got new twin beds in the summer of 2010. I had made curtains for the windows in their room earlier that year. I was lucky enough to find more fabric in the same collection, and made matching quilts for their beds. The fabric is all 100% Cotton Glitter Fabrics (Princess Collection) by Fabric Essentials.
One of the girls likes pink and the other likes purple. This one was made for Bridget, with a pink B in the center block. I used my Cricut machine to size and cut the pattern for the center initial block (using the Hello Kitty alphabet). It is appliquéd with a tight zig-zag stitch for durability.
Bridget was very impressed with her quilt, and loved the fact that it matched her curtains! I'll share Hailey's quilt in my next post.
