Hello Kitty Quilt...Check!


The Hello Kitty Quilt is DONE! This may technically be a UFO since I bought the fabric about 5 years ago with the intentions of making a quilt. I just didn't have the guts back then to make such a large one. It measures 56in x 74in. Is that a twin? That's what I was going for. I put it in the washer and dryer before bed last night. Good thing. My daughter, Ashley, was sick this morning. So I took it out of the dryer and put it on her. I said, " Here is your quilt, maybe it will make you feel better:)" It took me approx 3 weeks to make. A little longer if you count the time my machine was down and there was no sewing going on. I feel so accomplished! I have two finishes for the year! One mini, Good Morning, Sunshine, and Hello Kitty!! YAY!

I quilted 14 different quilting motifs. Considering my attention span and boredom level, this seems to be a good way for me to quilt! Here they are.











I know the photography is bad, but they were taken at night. =/

Question Thursday: Leah, I don't rally have a question, but rather a comment. I took your advise. I left ALL of the mistakes and imperfections in my quilt. I figured, who cares??? I just kept on going and with each motif, I found I was really getting a good rhythm as I went along. Besides, this quilt is for snuggles, not shows!  Hope you get to see this comment because I edited it in:)

  4. Dani, beautiful, beautiful job on the 14 different patterns!! It looks absolutely great!

    I'm with you - the quilt is for snuggles....not for shows.

    I especially like the flowers with loops. Is that your own pattern?

    1. Oh, wait you said flowers with loops. no, not mine either. Its just a general quilting motif...who knows where that one came from, but I first saw it on youtube by a great quilter named Patsy Thompson. Check out this video! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfIleOwPp6g&feature=related I guess she might have invented it, but i doubt it
