Fairy Quilt

I belong to a quilting forum. One of the members was giving away some scraps of fabric that had the sweetest pictures of fairies and castles. I used some of them to make this quilt which I am going to donate to the Quilts for Kids project.
Using my new sewing machine I bound the quilt with this tiny vine pattern. I just love the way this came out. It is so sweet and fit the girly theme so well.

Here is my stippling. While I was quilting this quilt my hands just started making loop patterns. And then hearts started to appear. And it looked really good. So I kept doing it. The results were pretty nice.

Here is a close up of the castle in the clouds.
Here are the teeny tiny baby fairies. I hope this quilt makes a little girl very happy. One of my boys actually asked if he could keep it (but I won't say who).

  3. I love making quilts for Quilts For Kids. I also have two boys and anytime I'm working on a quilt they ask if it is going to a kid in the hospital.
