    Mermaids

Size:  497.1 KB oo afraid to cut into it. In the end I played around on EQ8 a bit (I am a beginner but can do the basics) and decided on this very simple design. Delivering it this weekend for her 4th birthday....better late than never? Was going to use the panel as part of the backing but decided to make a large pillow instead. The quilt and pillow are for the playroom as mom is very fussy about decor.....no kiddy prints allowed in the bedroom!

    It's sweet. She'll love it. I'm with you---I have 4 and 6 year old grandsons who still haven't received "baby" quilts from me. The grands come too fast. Just goes to show you, you can create a person faster than you can create a quilt.

    I purchased some of the same Mermaid fabric last year and made a Project Linus Quilt with mine. Think I may have saved the scraps to put into an I Spy Quilt...will have to dig into my stash and see!! Your niece will enjoy her quilt!!

    Fun to watch it make it to her bedroom! I have a DGD who had a Cinderella room complete with a pumpkin carriage bed (built by her father) and a professionally painted wall. It was stunning! She slept in the living room in her “Dora the Explorer” fold out bed.

    Mermaids riding on seahorses are a fantasy for many imaginative little girls. I hope she enjoys it for many years.
