Beatrix Potter Hand Applique Quilt

Postby tecklenamedpink » Thu Oct 06, 2011 11:22 am

Finn's baby quilt is finally done. We were team green, so I went with a beatrix potter theme. My cousin and I did all the applique by hand using a coloring book as a guide. Ive never sewn before so it was a learning experience! We bought so many small quantities of funky furry fabrics that the workers at the fabric stores gave us wierd looks. My mom (and dad!) then sewed all the pannels together, and my godmother did all the quilting by hand. It really was a labor of love!

That is too cute! I looove the Beatrix Potter theme. I'm especially amazed that your grandma did all that quilting by hand. That must have taken forever!
