Fairy Girls creations.....

In the Christmas holidays Fairy Girl just wanted to play in the scraps..........she just wanted to sew bits of fabric together.............the pile of scraps is a fairly varied.......plus some scraps from a few other fiends it is pretty eclectic.......
She kept sewing.............and sewing and sewing...........little bits making bigger bits........
scraps from so many projects..........even some of Jindi's scraps from her SKofW SAL quilt........a piece of green fabric that Jenny @ Bird on the Border brought with her last week as she knows she loves green......some of the backing that she had on her very first quilt............playing with a mini twister...........
This holidays she finally got the top finished............
It's about 70 x 80inchs........
she used lots of scraps but OMG I see no difference with the scrap box.............
now what to do about the quilting................
one of her friends had a birthday recently..............she wanted a tree..............
Fairy Girl started this one Sunday afternoon and had it finished Monday morning..........
She has raw edge appliqued the pieces down...........
wished I could work so free of thoughts.........she just cut the pieces out with scissors and put them on...........I only helped with the binding lesson.....we actually used a full piece of fabric on the back and folded back onto the front and stitched down..........I had to show her how to stitch it down...........
another recent finish is this cushion.............love the hedgehog.............
shes been busy busy.........learning and creating different things all the time..........
bound by no rules or expectation...........
and a pic of the keets yesterday..........still super cute......

  1. Great news about the rain! Love Fairy Girls creations, especially the scrap quilt. Of course its going to be hard to machine quilt at this size, but she might like to tie it? Green is my favourite colour too, the cushion is super cute.

  4. I love your girl's just-do-it attitude! Amazing results . I bet her friend loved her gift. The cushion is beautiful and the quilt is a real one-off and all the more special for that. Go Fairy Girl! And hooray for you for just letting her express herself and not imposing any rules.

  24. Doing a belated catch up... Let Fairy Girl know that I envy her creativity. She should be so proud of her achievements. I'm really enjoying following the progress of your keets. You learn the most interesting things on blogs. Now I will know what baby guinea fowl is if ever the question comes up in a trivia quiz.
