What was your inspiration?
, this is Erin's big girls quilt. Erin and Bree are only 10 months apart, so this was made last March.
Erin is my happy go lucky, beaming smile grand daughter, wanted a quilt with cheerful colors, favorite color is pink, she loves butterflies ever since she 'grew' painted lady butterflies as a project, the colors reminded me a bit of the 60's so, the name flower power!
i felt like this quilt is as cheery as she is, as usual, I left some room to hand quilt, the girls are all fascinated by the big frame, hoping that i have 4 future quilters on my hands!
What are you most proud of?
I'm always proud to make something my grand girls love!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
if you do this pattern by cutting a large 9 patch into smaller blocks, be very precise when you cut, it's not a forgiving block if you are off!
it can be pieced the more traditional way, which is a bit easier...
