Both Happy








I've been having a wonderful time working on more little feature blocks using Tasha Noel's The Simple Life fabric range. Keeping with the fun and simple nature of the prints, embellishing has been a delight.

Miss E (5) was excited to know the quilt will be for her to use. She loves the prints, especially the ones with the girls and boys. The sections with the apple trees are her favourites as she loves red juicy apples.




Miss E was wanting to make her own quilt with my fabrics so as a compromise we decided we would work together on just this one quilt. Last night she diligently stitched a feature block of her choice.





Now we are both happy!

That is beautiful Karen. What a special quilt it will be and I bet Miss E will smile seeing her own little bit of quilting. :)

Robyn said...

Is she in her jammies because she can't wait to get started in the morning, or because she has to get every single available minute in before going to bed? Very sweet...

It is going to be lovely and will hold extra special meaning for her because she helped. Win, win.

I love your use of fabric and negative space. You always know how to feature the fabric and keep it visually stimulating! I can't wait to see this finished. I can see Miss E will be quite the quilter when she gets older! It will be such a wonderful blanket for her to have especially with the memories of creating it with you!

I still have the "crazy quilt" that I helped make as a young girl, with my two older sisters & mom.. we made one for each of us, and recently got talking about all those blocks we hand stitched.
Good memories!
Our Lilly, 8 years, recently started working on her first Penny runner with her Grand. (my mom) Such a treasure!
