Hey, I have a legit Crafty Tuesday entry today!
Finally, I got one of those little study snuggly block quilts done. Yes, those quilts that I had started for the girls awhile ago. Like…um, back before Christmas?
So I started with Em’s – hers is birds, owls and lots and lots of polka-lots.
Hmmm…perhaps I should have smoothed it out a bit before I photo’d it. But I quilted the front and batting together (stitched in the ditch – is that what it is called?) and then backed it with a yummy tangerine flannel. And then tied it in the corners with turquoise yarn. I got squeals when she came downstairs on Sunday morning, so I think she liked it. She has been snuggling with it ever since.
And, Tiger and I have been using it on the sofa in the evening after she pops off to bed. It is warm and definitely snuggly.
Now, of course I have a certain little 5-year old who asks almost hourly when her kitty cat quilt will be done. Off to finish that one up.
