When we were in WA I was lucky enough to have a quilt shop in our town, while on my many trips in I picked up a charm pack of fruits & veggies along with the pattern Bug Jar Quilt #238 Gee Gee's Quilting Inc. the pattern includes 2 sizes.
Finally a year or more later I worked this up.
I did add in an extra border to make it bigger. It would be great as a play-mat ISpy style or a fun wall hanging or heck why not a stroller/car-seat/baby lap quilt.
I fell in love with this when she debuted it as a block and was hoping she'd make a quilt pattern out of it.
For my quilt I used fabrics from my stash.
Alphabet Fairies. Flower Fairies by Michael
Miller, the green was left over from another project from last fall, the background fabric with dandelions is a piece of Japanese cotton my mom brought back for me, the back is a natural cream.
This took me a few nights to work on but it went together quickly.
a bit by adding in the corner pieces to the back as well as trying out
different quilting stitches my machine offers. For the binding I used my
backing a tutorial Melissa offers.
I am so happy with MY quilt!
Yes MINE, this lovely lady with take center stage on my couch.
If you ever make anything that Melissa offers stop on by the Sew BitterSweet Designs Flickr group, I'd love to see your creations.
