Trip Around the World »
Type of item: Functional
Cotton fabric from JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts, Thread, Batting
What was your inspiration?
I made this for a fellow French teacher who was having a baby. The Little Prince is one of the best-loved books from the last millenium, and our students read it. She was having a boy and her room was done in purple and blue, and all the prints I used had celestial motifs (stars, moons, etc.)
What are you most proud of?
The Little Prince that I copied free-hand from the book cover:
His hair turned out really well. I'm not very artistic and often mess up things like that.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
A trip-around-the-world baby quilt is one of the easiest and quickest (and IMHO prettiest) patterns you could use. I did a "trip" and then appliqud the design separately.
