What was your inspiration?
I loved Lizzy House's fabric line, Castle Peeps. I didn't think anything would top those adorable characters, and then along came 1,001 Peeps! I bought a fat quarter set of each colorway, plus some extra yardage. I decided that the blue colorway was the perfect amount of whimsical and boy for this quilt.
After deciding to use 1,001 Peeps for this quilt, I started to plan my layout. I loved the idea of wonky stars, but I knew that 1 fat quarter set wouldn't stretch far enough. I paired the prints with a bunch of solids from my lqs and some kona in ash for the background.
The blocks ranged in size from the smallest being around 3" and the largest 12". I quilted this piece with meandering, in a grey thread to match the background.
FInished size is 60" x 80".
What are you most proud of?
I created this quilt for a good friend's 5yo son. I was worried that he wouldn't like the quilt, especially since boys tend to grown out of "cute" so quickly. I was SO excited to hear that he loved it, and declared that he would never use another blanket again! <3
