Merry Grinchmas!

Grinchmas (sort of hard to see, but I promise it's there)
Here's an adorable customer quilt!  Her first top and it was made in a beginner's class.  It was fun to quilt because it's so playful and whimsical.  I can imagine her 2 little boys snuggled under the quilt, waiting for a story, and picking out their favorite scenes from this fabric.  I added more elements in the quilting to continue the fun.

The quilting is subtle, since it's white threads against a lot of white and yellow background.  It made photography a challenge!  But I'll show you what I can.
Ribbon, gifts and Seussian style bubbles in the pink border all the way around the quilt.

Of course, the Grinch!

... and Max

an empty stocking

a wonky tree
The quilt back is even, I just didn't get it straight on the bed.

I think she did a great job as a first time quilter.  It was so fun to see her enthusiasm as she dashed through the quilt shop, picking fabrics out for her next 2 quilts.  She's thinking about more ways to bless her family with a gift made by her hands after the next two are completed.  We've hooked another one!  I remember being warned about this very thing in my beginner class. 

Enjoy your day!

  1. Oh my gosh, that is just the best!

  2. Beautiful and very appropriate quilting! Did you do it freehand or is it computer aided?
