Isabel's Quilt............

This quilt is for a very special little girl...........
.......I just haven't been organised to show you pics of it.................
Her Mum was thrilled with it so maybe one day I can make her Mum a quilt................
the cream is chenille and my beautiful friend Dale quilted it on her machine for me.............
(speaking of Dale she isn't the best blogger as in getting posts up but she is a very prolific quilter and does beautiful work..............she currently has a photo of a quilt she made for her grandsons school.....I love it.......check it out..........)
Back to the quilt.............It was to be a baby quilt then I though if I make it a bit bigger then she could enjoy it for much longer..............so  unsure of the measurements looking at the quilt hanger )Mr Chookyblue) I would say maybe it is about 150cm square..............not the full length of a single bed bed but lay on the end lovely................
Where has May gone.............I thought I lost April but May has disappeared at a rapid rate..........June will be busy too...........I have a retreat, and a quilt show meet up to go too so........it's going to be great............I love it when I get to catch up with wonderful blog friends...............
Catch you later..............

  7. Very nice. Love the feel of chenille - takes me back to my childhood as my mother had one on her bed and she also had a chenille dressing grown and it always seemed the most comfy gown ever!!

  8. That's a lovely quilt Donna. I love the textured quilts for little people. I tend to use a lot of Minki for baby quilts. Might make one in Minki for this big baby one day.

  19. What a lovely quilt! Not sure where May disappeared to either, hoping June slows down a little but not too confident. I am off on a quilt retreat this weekend too (with Tracey), enjoy!
