    Third (and last!) Garden Fairy Quilt

    When I first found these fabric panels, knew I needed to make one for my friend's 4-year-old daughter who a) loves to dress up as a fairy, and b) loves to play in the garden with her mother.

    Then I saw that my 9-year-old niece had the old garden fairy story books, so had to make HER one.

    Then my friend saw the quilts and reminisced "oh I used to read that to my daughter when she was little and now she's graduating from college" and so made HER one. I think I'm done with the garden fairies. Here's the quilt and the graduating senior (who, by the way, told her mom: I'll never be too old for the garden fairies!)

    what a wonderful use of the panels. Well done. I've been attracted to this line of fabric forever, but never felt like I could do justice to it. I love seeing people actually use these wonderful images.

    Wow..that is beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    (BTW, the quilt above used ALL the seasons available with the panels.)

    Here's the one I made for my niece:

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    All three are beautiful. I admired them in the shop but couldn't think of what to do with them.

    Love your quilts. The fairies are so cute and you've done a great job of setting them in beautiful quilts. The recipients look pretty happy, too.
