Bright Little Quilt

 
I might be pulled over by the quilt police for this bright little quilt.  He would ticket me for quilting with impaired vision and shaking hands, failure to maintain 1/4 inch seam allowances, excessive use of a seam ripper, failure to make perfect 45 degree turns on corner binding, and failure to yield to pins.
 
But someday I'll give this bright  quilt to some little girl, and she won't notice those things.  All she will see is the puffy pinkness, her favorite color,  that it looks like a quilt for a big bed, but it's just right for her doll, and it belongs just to her.
 
 
 I quilted this one on my new machine.  For a quilt that will be played with, maybe this is the best way, but I don't think I could ever do a big quilt on the machine.

  5. My favorite color!!! It is darling Charlotte.
    I have a lap quilt I want to try to machine quilt. It has been sitting in the closet for months. I'm terrified to try!

  7. Oh, Charlotte~ I just love it!! The fabric is so pretty, especially the backing.
    And it's a good thing the quilt police hasn't been to my house... if they saw my excessive seam ripper use, they would put me under the jail! *hahaha*

  8. I love the bright colors of your little quilt. I think everything looks perfect on it. I am sure a little girl would love to receive this quilt someday; and it is yours to enjoy in the meantime.

  9. Thank you for the sweet comments on mine and I think that would make a beautiful planter for your flowers. I've been looking for another wheelbarrow but they're hard to find.. My mother used to use old wash pots and stuff like that. I think they're so pretty.. I've got an old maple tree that's pretty old and has a hole in one side of the trunk and I'm thinking about putting some wave petunias in it.. Hope you have a nice week.
