Here is a new quilt that my mom and I put together. She had been making a bunch of baby blankets for people back in about September of last year. Being who I am, I help her with every endeavor that she goes into when making blankets. That makes them our projects. I may not be the best person when it comes to sewing, but my mom and I are good teams in putting everything together and making rather nice blankets. It has something to do with being creative enough that we're able to find appropriate colours and what not.
Well, because I liked this pattern enough, my mom went and took the pattern we had and expanded it to fit my bed, which it definitely does. It's bigger than my bed, bigger than my mom's bed, which is a queen sized. Well, my mom intended it to be my Christmas gift, but we didn't get it done until April...Woops.
Either way, I love it, it fits my personality perfectly. While I couldn't really get decent enough close ups of the actual squares, there were blue and purple dragon fly patterns, blue butterflies and then purple hearts. It's all my favourites. That's more important. We also used the left overs of each to make the edging, as my mom prefers to make her own edging. The back is also a very light lilac, kind of the colour of my other quilt. This is the one I use now.
We got this pattern out of the "24-Hour baby Quilts" book from leisure Arts. My mom was trying to find a new pattern when she was making baby blankets. The pattern is specifically the "My Paper Dolls" pattern in the book. This is just an expanded form of that pattern, seeing as how the original was for baby quilts.
So yeah, like this one. It's one of my favourites, and I'm glad that my mom and I got to make it.
