Lissy's Flowers

Remember the other day when I showed you you the Flower Pillow? Well I told you that I was going to take a picture of Thing #2's quilt for you - the one that the pillow was made to match. As promised here it is. I finished this quilt last August.

And because it is snowing and cold here and I have nothing better to do except clean my house and do laundry I will give you a little history on this bright quilt.

I first saw this quilt when I was in a quilt shop - back when I actually lived close to one - a lady was there with her version of this quilt all done just looking for a fabric to bind it with. You all know that I am a sucker for flowers I just loved this quilt and asked her the name of the pattern: Lissy's Flowers. I started to save my pennies so that I could get the stuff to make this quilt myself. Then one day I was looking through the kits at another quilt shop and guess what I found . . . yes this quilt with everything I needed, and what sealed the deal was I had a coupon for this store!

So I made this quilt and my girl loves it. I quilted it with an all over design in hot pink thread - her choice - but I like the way it turned out. I don't get to work much with pink and this was a lot of fun. I am working on a pillow sham to go with this and will post it as soon as I get it done.

I am hoping to get her bed finished soon. Currently she is sleeping on one of the bunkbeds that I will be needed here in the next couple of months for one of the other kids. I am working on the bed at a friends house because she has the space and also had projects to work on. But I just need it to quit snowing and warm up so I can get over there.

As always, linking to the parties on the tab at top.

  4. That is soooo cute! Can you explain how the circles are made for the flowers? I also found you Under the Table and Dreaming.

  5. laniebp - I made the flowers just by cutting different sizes of circles and sewing them on top of each other. Then when you wash the raw edges fray.

    Thank you all for the nice words about this quilt, I am so glad that you like it.
