Steiger headed up to his grandma's Friday night, and I got to sewing. Back in October, I bought a pile of the Bliss blenders.
I cut them up, and got a little top done. I had wanted to try diamonds... so I did.
And then it was just a top gone in to my pile of "to be quilted"
An online friend wanted a custom quilt a while back, but I was swamped (and it wasn't looking any better any time soon). So I told her about a few tops I had finished that I could quilt up for her.
She liked the Bliss diamonds.
Her daughter's nickname is "Bird," and she asked if I could add a bird to it.
So I did.
She also wanted her nickname on the back -- so I added that too.
I have to tell you about the back -- it is flannel... and oh so so soft (and oh so pink). :) (Moda's flannel really is amazing though).
So happy with how it turned out, and can't wait to see pictures of the little Miss opening it for her second birthday party this weekend! :)
Full tutorial coming soon -- I've already got the pictures for it ready. ;)
