Early Quilts (2)

Here is another early quilt I made for the granddaughter of a work colleague. I made this from stash and was glad to use the fairy fabric up. I was careful with the placement of fabric to keep the fairies all going the same way. Don't know if that made such a simple quilt better, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I quilted it in the ditch.
(Remember - these are not digital photos but scanned in to the computer from prints.)

This is the back of the quilt.
And of course every little girl's doll needs a quilt too.
This will help you to see the fairies on the fabric.

I would probably make something a little different today, but I do like working with squares and rectangles and sometimes you do need to just make a blanket for a kid to drag around. This quilt is still in use and much loved.

Loving your early quilts posts. It is fun to look back and see where we came from and how things evolved. And still be in love with those creations.
