    Finished DGG's Quilt Today :-)

    I needed a quilt for a little girl around 5 or 6 years old and didn't know where to start. This little girl is a step-great granddaughter & I haven't met her yet, but am looking forward to it! :-) I got the inspiration to try pinwheels because I have such troubles with bias edges & wanted some practice. I made the pinwheels, put a yellow frame around them, sashed them with white. Then I decided to add some applique flowers at the cross-roads with leaves like the flowers in the lighter blades. I found some feather cornices which I FM'd in the corners of each of the yellow frame corners. I stenciled leaves & vines through the sashing & around the border, then did some paint for stamens & the antennae for the butterflies.

    Cute quilt! Those 3D butterflies really give the finishing touch. Have fun meeting your new one. One of my most memorable nights was when I met our oldest grand-daughter. She was only 11 months at the time, and those blue eyes and happy smile stole my heart. She's 13 now and I love her dearly.

    Adorable! Love the 3-D butterflies.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
