Amy from Park City Girl has organised a virtual Quilt Festival! Yippee! I haven't been to a real Quilt Festival for donkey's years so it is so much fun to see everyone participating online.
So we are supposed to choose our favourite quilt and blog about it. Surprise, surprise my favourite quilts are the ones I make for my girls! I couldn't choose just one but instead am going to show you 3! Hope you don't get bored!
The first is a Kaffe Fassett quilt I made for Amelie while she was still in my belly. I knew she was going to be a girl so I chose red, orange and pink. I absolutely adore this quilt even though Amelie ignored it for the first 3 years of her life. But I am pleased to report that it is now her favourite cover for her bed.
Next up is another quilt for Amelie but one I designed myself. Amelie was having problems with her colours. She still does with green and blue but I am pretty sure she isn't colour blind! So anyway, I made this quilt so we could practice recognising colours. At the time her favourite song was "Carola la Caracola" in other words Carola the Snail. So I came up with some little snails and put some velcro on their backs so that she could stick them on the corresponding flower on the quilt. Amelie and Hanna still have great fun with this quilt. Hanna enjoys stealing the snails from Amelie and Amelie enjoys chasing Hanna! Nevermind at least it still gets lots of use!
Finally, there is the number quilt I designed for Hanna. It is supposed to be a garden with different animals hiding behind leaves and flowers. Hanna can play peek-a-boo with the animals and also learn to count.
We hung it in her bedroom but a little bit too high. Next time I have to remember to hang quilts at child level! She can still play with it but has to balance on a stool.
Now go and check out the other quilts. There are some gorgeous ones out there!
