Elori's Birthday Quilt


Happy 3rd Birthday Sweet Elori!!

Every little girl needs a new quilt for her big girl bed and every quilting grandma is more than happy to sew one up .... stitched with lots of prayers, hugs and love.

Trying it out here for size at my house and yes there is another quilt peeking out underneath.

The pattern is a free one from Cluck Cluck sew.  That was my starting point, from there I added some rainbows and appliqued her name.  The boho rainbows were from a free colouring page online as were the letters.

I had planned on using this Lori Holt block at the top corner as the sun, but it didn't survive the cut!  It'll show up in a future quilt with large flowers.

The backing is minky, I know the kids all love the do I!!

The hearts are machine quilted, free motion and the background is hand quilted.  I just can't resist adding some hand quilting even if my hands pay for it later!

So glad I added this fabric for a bit of pop.  I had a 1 yard cut of it and was determined to fit it in. Pretty sure it's a Free Spirit fabric.

 I love this checked fabric, it goes well with the pinkish corals and golds.   I love it so much I used it for the binding.

Party day was a, cousins, food.

Now I can publish the post without any one seeing the quilt too early. 

 I love making quilts for my grandkids.  Some Christmas quilts may or may not be on the go already!

For now I'm just having fun making Zinnia blocks from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage 2 Book.  They are just so darn cute, I can't stop making them.

I finally used up the rest of my Itty Bitty Houses.  This may end up as a wall hanging.
