    Third (and last!) Garden Fairy Quilt

    When I first found these fabric panels, knew I needed to make one for my friend's 4-year-old daughter who a) loves to dress up as a fairy, and b) loves to play in the garden with her mother.

    Then I saw that my 9-year-old niece had the old garden fairy story books, so had to make HER one.

    Then my friend saw the quilts and reminisced "oh I used to read that to my daughter when she was little and now she's graduating from college" and so made HER one. I think I'm done with the garden fairies. Here's the quilt and the graduating senior (who, by the way, told her mom: I'll never be too old for the garden fairies!)

    what a wonderful use of the panels. Well done. I've been attracted to this line of fabric forever, but never felt like I could do justice to it. I love seeing people actually use these wonderful images.

    (BTW, the quilt above used ALL the seasons available with the panels.)

    Here's the one I made for my niece:

    Beautiful! The windows came out really well...I want to lean or reach into them! lol Nice job
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    All three are beautiful. I admired them in the shop but couldn't think of what to do with them.
