I decided on a rather simple patchwork construction, using all the same fabrics as her quilt. I wanted it to match without being overly matchy-match. If that makes sense. I'm not sure I quite achieved that but fingers crossed it isn't too much when they are paired together.
For the initial, I stuck with a dark pink solid, attached in a raw edge applique style. I do so love this quick and easy method and, well, it gives me a chance to practise my FMQ.
I also stuck with simple when it came to the quilting - straight lines 1/2" from each seam. Quick, easy and effective.
The binding is just the same solid used for the initial. I think it frames the madness of all those prints really nicely.
And, then, for the back I just had to use the adorable print which inspired the whole colour scheme of the original quilt - these owls by Ann Kelle.
So cute and wacky!
As per usual, a zipper finishes it all off.
The final size is a rather large and cuddly 22" square - with a 24" insert used in these photos, as that's what I had on hand (hence the extra puffiness).
And that's it - all ready to travel east next week for the big day. Hope Miss L likes it!
