    Fairy Quilts for my DGDs

    Here are pictures of the fairy quilts that I made my DGDs. They are made from panels of fairy fabric by Micheal Miller based on " The Flower Fairies"by Cicely Mary Baker who published a book of drawings of fairies for each flower and also poems about them. I got her book and also one called " the Girls Guide to Flower Fairies" on Amazon (Cheap) The girls have made a fairy garden based on ideas from the "girls quide book". and are planning a fairy tea party. Oh course I had to make them fairy quilts to help them dream of fairies! Thanks for looking.

    They are both gorgeous. I have read other post about there GD's being to old, well I am lets just say a little over the hill. LOL. And I would love the have one in blue, my favorite color. Yes you just have to keep the little kid alive inside. I would love to see your DGD's face when they recieved them. Wonderful quilts.

    How beautiful! The girls will be so thrilled to each have their own fairy quilt. What a great memory you are making for them.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    So pretty. I have a couple of those panel sets, just waiting for the opportunity to make them up. What an awesome contribution you have made to their sweet little fantasy.

    Beautiful quilts. I made my first GD a periwinkle flower fairy pinwheel / log cabin quilt and literally was picking through the trash for scraps. When she had a sister, I made my 2nd granddaughter the ABC flower fairy. Now that beautiful fabric is finished being printed. Happy to see you got the panels and made some pretty quilts with it. Sure wish it would print again.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
