1001 peeps quilt

July 28, 2011

Yea!!!  I actually finished the top about 2 weeks ago.  It was so unbelievably hot here for over a week, we are talking 100 degrees and no ac, that there was no way I could bring myself to quilt it!  Just the thought of sitting at my machine with a quilt on my lap was enough to drive me insane.  So, I put it aside for a little while.

On Monday it was finally not sweltering so I got this baby out.  I basted and quilted it all in one afternoon!!!  Crazy!!!!  Once I start on something it drives me nuts until it's finished, so having this sucker sit there untouched for 2 weeks was grating on me!  :)  The girls were playing so nicely so I just kept going.  I sewed the binding on yesterday.

The characters are so fun!!  Adelaide calls it the "princess blanklet"!  I don't have the heart to correct the blanket part, I just love all of the words they say just a little off when they are little!  :)

I quilted two lines in the inside of the little frame that surrounds the fussy cut center and then stippled the rest of the quilt.  It's so nice and crinkly.  I didn't want to obstruct the fussy cut characters so I left those unquilted.

I have already started another quilt, I had to do something while I put this one aside.  :)  I have no idea why the quilts are appealing to me so much lately but I know we will be super snuggly here this winter!!!

Again the fabric used in this quilt is 1001 peeps by Lizzy House.
I used kona ash and PFD for the sashing.
The pattern is fussy fairytales by Kate Conklin.

  5. Love it Amy! Wow, you're rolling along with these quilts pretty quickly! I've yet to complete my first one :-/ I don't know why I'm dragging in that department, I guess I don't have the confidence to quilt them yet. But yours are amazing, great inspiring pieces!

  6. Wow! It looks amazing! Do you mind if I share a picture of it on my blog?

  7. Recently I've fallen in love in patchworks! I hope I'll find time to make some of them and start quilting some time in the nearest future :)
