I am so excited to finally be able to show you Kathleen's quilt. Kathleen asked me to piece and quilt a fantasy quilt for her little daughter. She gave me some guidelines (her daughters initials within a circle on a plain band and two bands of colour at the top) but basically left the quilting up to me. Because I have some material left I am making two pillow shams.
I incorporated a bunny, house, umbrella in the rain, and a kitten into a pattern of swirls, bubbles, flowers, leaves, and feathers. The top border was swirls and the bottom border had a large pattern similar to one I saw on Angela Walter's blog.
All the material is cotton. The batting is a cotton-poly and I used so-fine thread throughout. I backed it with a soft beige/brown Minky. I bound it with the same material as in the stripes and I think it adds just the right extra pizzazz to the quilt.
Here is a picture of the centre panel.
