Fairies for Hanna

Well, the color challenge is done. The crayons that I picked match the pink and purple used for the attic windows.

The fabric line included 6 1/2 inch motifs of fairies and a cute border print. I decided to use both to make the quilt as a shop sample and eventually to give to my 6 year old granddaughter Hanna. Hanna lives in Sweden so I don't get to see her very often but we all all going on a Mexican cruise this summer. I have the Noah's Ark quilt for her little brother Noah and I have fabric to make a train quilt for my other grandson Emilio. So I am set for little gifts for the cruise for each of them - at least I will be when I actually get Emilio's quilt made.

Here is a close up of one of the cute fairies and my mitered pink and purple attic windows. I designed the quilt in EQ6 and finished writing up the pattern today. I will cut kits for it this weekend and it will hang in the shop for a couple of months.

I quilted it with Minkee on the back - Minkee is such a great feeling for a backing of any quilt and I absolutely love the way it looks when quilted. I used a panto called curling feathers - one of my favorites.

Tomorrow is guild day where all the color challenges will be shown. I wrapped the little prizes this evening so all I need to do in the morning is make peach cobbler to take for the lunch potluck. I am going to use one of Paula Deen's recipes that sounds good and looked great when she cooked it on TV.


  1. What an adorable little quilt. I'm sure your granddaughter will love it!

  2. This is so pretty! I love it! I wanted the fabric, but the quilt shop in town never ordered it.

  3. I love the fairies! You did a great job on the challenge!

  4. That is a cute quilt. Any little girl would be very happy to have it. Good use of pink and purple.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
