This is DD2's first and so far only quilt - top minus border done in 1999 and finished by me yesterday, by machine. The blocks are foundation paper pieced - a method that is very nice to do with children. The size of the blocks are 4" and the quilt measures 15" square.
Every log is machine quilted in the ditch, so it will take wear.
A seam allowance or two are very scant. I used cotton batting and the quilt has been in the washer, so it is soft and nice.
The quilt belongs to Kosen (Cuddles), who is DD2's all time favourite cuddly toy.
He is worn by love, but still going strong.
DD2 bought the 2 dalmatian fabrics herself and picked the rest from my fabric collection.
The original plan was that she would finish it herself, but time, age and interests do not always play the same tune, so I figured it was better to have a finished little quilt than having just a top in a binder.
She was 8 years old back then and is now 15 and a very cool teenager :-)
If she ever turns to sewing again I will happily provide her with everything she needs.
When she sew on my old machine she refused to sit on a children chair with a foot rest, so we had 2 thick encyclopaedias under the pedal.
The photo did not catch that foot, and that is a shame, because it was ever so cute :-)
I think I am going to be the safe keeper of this quilt, but I am sure it will be treasured when she is more grown up :-)
