Marissa's first quilt, pieced summer 2011
and quilted summer 2013 in Niceville, Florida
Minky/cotton front, minky back, poly batt
Two summers ago, when she pieced the top, she thought the fabrics were awesome - So awesome, she wouldn't let me sway her from sewing her first quilt with minky as one of the checkerboard fabrics.
She giggled at one point after finishing a row and waiting for me to finish helping her advance the quilt on the farme: "What I like about this quilt is that it even looks like a little kid made the flowers." This is her favorite "little-kid-looking flower."
I love this heart. Nope, it wasn't on purpose. :)
I like the binding she chose from my stash
I've talked about the minky being an inferior quality - not fun to work with, and disappointing in feel after working with high-quality minky. You can read about that and see her at the frame at the previous post.
Still, it's a cozy quilt and would be fabulous to cuddle under at the tv - in Colorado, maybe! In Florida, it's a bit much. Maybe it will be happiness in January for a couple of weeks. ;D
