A Cheery Quilt for My Nephew!

Thursday, November 4, 2010

Good Morning!

I'm so glad I can finally share this with you all. I made it a few days ago, but I didn't want to show it off on here until it my nephew received it! I got the idea from the first quilt I made for my little guy because it was unique and fun, but I wanted to do a larger pattern that I would be able to complete in a lot less time. I tried another, more "typical" quilt first, but really disliked it. My sister liked the idea of yellows and oranges (which made me happy because I just did blue/green/brown) so that was the colours I went with. With halloween just around the corner, it kind of makes me think of candy corn!
[Pardon the wrinkles]

For the back, I used this cute fabric that I planned on using for the other quilt design (that I disliked).

And I added a little tag so that nobody would forget who it was for, who made it and when it was made. :)

And here is the little guy lounging with it!

Oh wow, great job!! I want to make a quilt. Any tips? How'd you make it? How'd you make the tag?

So many questions.. I'm sorry, lol.

I tried to send you an email, and it came back saying delivery failed :( I tried acireacccessories@gmail.com like on your Contact Me tab.

Oh no! I'm so sorry, sminto! It was a typo, I put three "c"s in by accident. It's all fixed up now.


And no worries about so many questions! I like this quilt and the other one I made because there's lots of room to be sloppy! This one was a lot easier than the other one because it's a very oversized, simplified version of the other pattern.

How about I make a post dedicated to how to make one of these quilts?! It seems like a little too much to put in this comment box. :) I'll try to get it up in a few days!

Thank you so much for fixing that! :)

And I would *oh so appreciate* a post dedicated to these quilts. I'd like to make one for a good friend of mine, and this seems less intimidating for a beginner.

Thank you so much!

No problem! And I'll get to work on the quilt tutorial!
