No, really. I started working on this pretty little girl so long ago I can’t even remember starting.

I had all of these fabrics left over from a couple of baby quilts I made when my sister was pregnant with her first daughter…who is now 9. And At some point about 4 or 5 years later I decided to use up those scraps. I started cutting a piecing aaaaaaaaand 5 years later here she is in all her glory.

Why did it take so long? I thought you’d never ask.

This piece of floral delight is the culprit. See, any cotton headed ninny muggins knows you shouldn’t use stretchy fabric when quilting because it stretches and shifts and moves and bunches and does a lot of other things you don’t want fabric to do. So most people would have taken one look at this fabric and thought, “That would make a cute skirt, top, turban, (fill in the blank with practically anything but ‘quilt backing’).” But not me. NoooooOOOooo. I was all like, “Imma turn you into a quilt!” SMH. To make a long story short there was a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth when I pinned the quilt layers together.

I literally have no idea what I’m doing.

But it’s finished now! And look how cute it turned out!

I couldn’t get a full shot of the front in the picture (I need to raise my clothes line a couple feet) but this is a twin size, 7ft 4 inches x 4ft 6 inches.

And, lucky you, it’s for sale! At some point I will get the website set up for purchasing (hopefully it won’t take as long as this quilt did) but until then: Email me @ aftonjanelle@yahoo.com or PM me on Facebook for more info.
