Custom Ordered Quilt Complete


It is interesting how some times the things requested are the simplest to do.  Tanya was recently asked to make a quilt that was similar to one we had on Etsy, but a little bigger.  This is just a simple charm square quilt, but it was requested using the same fabric line (2 years old) and white minky on the back.


The hardest part of this quilt was finding the material.  Tanya orders a few charm packs and when they showed up she realized it did not have enough of the flowers which is what the request was for so she ordered a few more.  Now we have the left overs of 5 charm packs, but we do have a happy baby with a new quilt.  These are from the Amela line a Me and My Sisters fabric line.  Tanya is a huge fan of theirs so I am sure she will use up the leftovers in something fun.


Speaking of happy babies and happy dad's I went by my baby's crib and was delighted to see her using the quilt I made for her.  She likes grabbing the quilts and throwing them on the ground (basically unfolding them), but has never really used them.  Look she is sleeping with it and better yet the pillow case I made her is on a pillow and she is sleeping on it.


My teen (baby) is also using her quilts that I have made.  She has a twin size version of the quilt that Julia is sleeping under.  Also on her bed is her skeleton quilt (that she made in school last year) and that purple in the bottom left corner is the lap quilt I made her.  It is fun to see something I made being loved and used.

The quilt is beautiful, you were soooo lucky to find the same fabrics. I love the photo of your little one in her cot, they are so squidgable aren't they, especially when they're sleeping :o). The quilts on your teen baby's bed are beautiful, the colours are so warm.

Love your blog.
