My oldest is turning 9 in October and this was supposed to be her 5th birthday present. This was definitely one of my oldest WIPs (I have one more that is older that will be finished before summer!!). I struggled with this quilt because there are directional prints that are upside down that shouldn't be upside down, like girls on swings, kids on scooters and puppies. And because these blocks bothered me, I didn't finish.
This quilt wasn't about me...it was a quilt that my peanut was promised and that she loved. I remember laying in bed with her and seeing this fabric and her begging me for a quilt made out of it.
I finally got around to finishing the quilt and then wanted to use up some wool batting that I had...and then I had problems. My basting spray did not hold very well with this wool batting and there are some serious(!!) puckers on the back of the quilt. The good thing is my 8 year old really doesn't care and is so excited to have her quilt.
The fabric is Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey.
I am linking up with Fabric Tuesday, Show and Tell Tuesday , Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?, Needle and Thread Thursday and Finish it Friday.
