Default Appliqué Name Quilt

A friend of my daughter has an 8 year old girl who just had serious surgery. Of course she needed a quilt! The result is fine, but I was so stupid with the appliqué! I had the letters fused down, then I sandwiched and partially quilted it before doing the buttonhole stitch around the letter! What was I thinking! Oh, right, I wasn’t!!! Luckily the little girl didn’t hear the cussing. I made this with lots of Accuquilt products - 1”, 3”, 6” finished strip dies, carefree lowercase alphabet die, and a 2 1/4” cut size strip die for the binding. Quilted with King Tut variegated blues, greens, and teals on top, SuperBob pink in the bobbin, bound with pink serpentine stitch in Aurifil. The back is a brighter pink splatter print. Hope she likes it.

I think because of the situation it was hard for you to think, but if you want to know what I think, it looks wonderful. I am sure Gracelyn will be proud of it and so will her mom. So heartbreaking when our little ones have to go through something like this.I do hope she recovers well. -Toogie
