Ode to Old McDonald’s Farm

Penny brought me  a quilt to finish for her 4 year old grandson.  She was very clever with her design for the quilt. A  book panel  was bought but instead of making a fabric book,  she made a quilt.   Sashing, in primary colors, was added around each individual block. We decided to stitch a simple swirl pattern so it wouldn’t distract from the quilt itself.

On the borders,  there is a farm scene and a small alphabet on the top.  Can you see it? What a great place for teaching children the alphabet.

Children’s quilts are amongst some of my favorites because they are so colorful, playful, and fun.  I just love  this quilt!  Well done Penny!

Judy also brought me a cute quilt for someone special. She decided to add bugs on the inside area of the quilt.

Snails anyone?

Along the border, marching ants were added in a variegated thread.  They  really are there.

Here is an overall picture of the finished quilt.  Did I tell you that this is Judy’s first quilt? She did a great job!

Until next time,

Happy Quilting!
