Back in the Groove

Apparently my children are not the only ones growing.... one of my dear Clients Granddaughters - is moving up to a big bed!!! So she made this adorable quilt for her.


 The appliques are so darn adorable - and!!!! There was a ladybug!!!  I loved it!


She wanted it really fluffy and cuddly, so we used Quilter's Dream Dream Puff Batting - and did a meander through the stripes.

And then, oh my, and then - I got to play in the applique section. I twirled, and whirled, and feathered, and had a grand ol' time.

and I listened to Josh Groban SO LOUD!!!! the UPS man heard it when he drove up.... but it wasn't bothering anyone!!!
Oh - the back...  I love love love the texture!!!  This was such a fun quilt!!

What an adorable quilt. I love Quilter's Dream battings, but I've never used this one. It looks like it machine quilted beautifully!

I love the contrast of the simple stripes and quilting vs. the appliqué section. What a perfect "big girl bed" quilt.
