Pattern Description:

I discovered the magical world of Cicely Mary Barker fairies while browsing books in an antique store last summer. So when I saw on the shelf of my favorite local quilt store in Port Gamble holiday fabric that featured some of her fairies, I was very excited and I immediately visualized a wall quilt with them. They seemed to have fun and ready to jump and frolic. Thus came the idea of Merry Fairies.
After I completed it, I realized that any of your favorite characters or animals can be used for this quilt. It can be infinitely personalized.

It brings magic to my home, as if the fairies were about to jump out of the wall quilt and join in the fun!

It is easy and fast to do, which is great just a few weeks from the Holidays!
