    my Fairies dancing under the stars quilts.

    My Hubby and I went to the Melbourne Quilting Exhibition in March where he saw the fairy material and quilt and thought it would be good for 1 granddaughters quilt. But we have 3 and have to treat them all alike. so purchased the material and being it was double sided got 4 quilts. I made them to fit a single bed, as the display was much smaller. I am happy with them they took me a month to make the 4 and cant wait till Christmas to see the faces when they get them. My daughters think they are great. Now am working on projects for the 3 grandsons. I am very happy how these turned. out

    How cute! You did a great job on these. I have 3 of the "All Through The Woods" pattern quilt tops done for a client but now need to quilt them. They are twin/throw size as well. They were fun to make, but glad the tops are done. Now I need to figure out how to quilt them. I won't have a border on these, just a binding which I'll also have to decide on.
    I'm sure your grands will love these! They are precious!

    What a cute idea, and so clever to put their names on them!

    Aussie girl, I love how you worked the pattern and material. Very inspiring. Hope your grand daughters fall instantly in love with them.

    Thanks for the compliments. These were fun, and hubby encouraged me and helped with suggestions. I have only been quilting full on for about a year thanks to my sisters encouragement, and find it challenging to work out different designs. I never know how things are going to look in the finish, and I am really enjoying my retirement from working and find this a good relaxation.

    Those are wonderful -- they look great!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    I LOVE those! The spare one is for sleepover friends?
    They would be particularly cool for camping- a great sense of the big open sky and the fun that happens.
    Well done. (Also on being so organised- these are Christmas presents?)
