I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.View all patterns by designer (43) »
Fast! Simple! Charming!
Baby Quilt, Crib Quilt, Lap Quilt. Child Quilt.
A great gift idea for the next grand baby.
The center panel is about 36" x 36" and makes a big bold design using the super-simple freezer paper applique technique which makes this applique so easy even a child can help with the work.
A nice size baby or child size quilt. ,The finished size is about 40" x 52",a good size for a throw while reading to your child on the couch yet big enough to cover him when he falls asleep. If the size does not suit your needs, the design lends itself well to customizing to the size needed.
An optional idea for additional embellishment would be to stitch the child's name or a fun short quote in the center of one of the strips below the center panel.
