As many of you know, I don't get very many really simple quilts. I seem to quilt one custom after another, which does get tiring. It's a mental game. Sometimes it really is nice to have a quilt that is just not calling for the "over the top" custom treatment. Erin sent me this baby quilt. It's (give or take) 45"x55", and is made from the nicest flannel fabrics. She did a nice job on the appliques. She asked for something a little simpler, as overquilting the flannel would have made it stiff.
I still wanted to make the quilt as cute as possible - childlike and sweet. I have done several quilts like this one, with a scene at the top of a pieced section. I knew that the spray of free-flowing feathers would look great -- kind of like the wind above the characters. Dontcha just love the whim of the chick's wings (especially #3!)?!
The pup needed a little something else, so he got a collar with a heart.
I took yesterday off to putter on my mosaic floor quilt. I have a 112" custom staring me in the face, and I decided I needed a couple days to get it loaded and review my plans, rather than diving right into the quilting of it yesterday. Go figure, the day you take off from quilting is the day you receive 2 more custom quilts to quilt! Talk to you soon...
