This is the first of three quilts I'm trying to get done for my kids before Christmas.
This one is for my eight yr old daughter.
It's made using Heather Ross' Mendocino line.
I added a few other prints to the mix to give it more color and contrast.
I chose this beautiful Joel Dewberry print for the back. I actually like it much better than the $40/yd print I was considering for half a second. (Still not sure why --or who-- would actually spend that much on a yard of fabric no matter how beautiful it is!!)
Even though my daughter is eight, she still has dolls/stuffed animals that she loves, so a mini was in order as well. The mini measures 15" by 19".
I just did straight-line quilting shadowing the rows.
The finished quilt measures 52" by 74".
Last year when I gave my husband an unfinished quilt top for Christmas I vowed to start early on my kids' quilts. With only one of three done, looks like I'm cutting it close again this year.
