This blog post belongs to my Nine Quilts by Christmas series. Click here to see where it all began. Click the relevant number to see quilts one, two, three, four, five, or six. For quilts eight and nine, stay tuned!
This quilt was gifted to the lovely Miss L. I wanted to make her something that was fun, and young, but not too girly, and not so young that it wouldn’t grow with her. The pattern is Tumble by Allison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew, and the fabric, once again, is a bit of everything there ever was! Cotton and Steel, Moda, Cloud 9, and all sorts of other bits and pieces from my stash.
Not going to lie – I really love this pattern. I’ve made it a few times, and it’s quick, simple, and effective, every time. It was kind of fun to include a nod to Miss L’s heritage in the fabrics – can you spot it?
The border fabrics are a navy grunge, and an Alison Glass 2017 Sunprint. This was the first time I’d ever laid eyes or hands on an AG fabric, and I was pretty stoked!!! The backing is a blue suede flannel. I think the quilting pattern is called Fruitopia.
And here is Miss L with her finished quilt! Like her brother, Master N, she had the quilt on her bed the next day, and took it camping too! I loved seeing it in action so soon! And I love that kids aren’t too precious about their quilts. Sometimes it can be a bit scary letting go of that crisp and pristine quilt, but it’s so worth it to see it so thoroughly loved!
Next up is Miss E! We’re nearly on the home stretch! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’ll be back soon for the next installment.
