Mabel's BIG quilt
Last July, six year old Mabel took me aside and with great earnestness explained her need for a "big" quilt. Yes, I had made her a small quilt when she was two and now she was six and a big girl who needed a big quilt.
Her well thought remarks made me realize that she did indeed need a "big" quilt. I finished it and gave it to her last fall, but finally took pictures the first of February while we were visiting her family.
I used a jelly roll of "Sundrops" by Corey Yoder and a Bella solid to strip piece a "Sweet 16" quilt.
I love this cheerful fabric. I machine quilted straight lines forming sqaures.
I pieced the backing with additional "Sundrop" material. I used the ends of the strip sets as a stop border between the two different fabrics.
Now my cheerful granddaughter has a BIG cheerful quilt!
