I shared last week that one of my close friends had a little baby girl. I was so excited as I had the perfect scraps left of beautiful material from Michael Miller to make a quilt! These scraps are from the "Ginger Blossom" collection.
Here is a close shot of my favorite part of the quilt. The "P" I traced a large chipboard letter onto my fabric, cut it out and zig zagged it into place. I finished her name with the alphabet stamps from the Kim Hughes collection. The little sheep and chick are stamped from Kim's "Sweet Spring" set as well. I colored in a little definition with my copics and added some grass ground cover.
I hope I am encouraging you to use your stamps for SO MUCH MORE than paper.
As for the pattern of the quilt. Well, I didn't follow one. I had a specific amount of fabric left in the different patterns so I drew out on a piece of paper how far each swatch would go and made my pattern accordingly.
Here is a shot of the full baby quilt. How fun it was to make something for such a special lil' bundle!
Enjoy your monday!
