Entry for Blogger’s Quilt Festival
We are new to the whole blogger world. Who knew that there was a Blogger’s Quilt Festival, showcasing all kinds of lovely goodies?! I guess we can enter something as we are bloggers and we do quilt. And we have made a few this year. Hmm, now it’s a matter of which quilt should we pick to showcase??
I almost went with the Cubs quilt because I think Clark turned out pretty darn well. But then I remembered Dominic and his quilt . . . and well, there really wasn’t any contest. Dominic wins hands down. We drew Ellie the elephant from a clip art piece we found on the internet and added three balloons.
Entry for Festival
Here is a picture of him with the quilt, along with his dad and mom when they were babies. His mom had a similar quilt – you can see the balloons behind her – that inspired his.
Here we drew the outline on what we thought was heat ‘n bond (it wasn’t), and then Ellie is waiting to be appliquéd on to the white background. The quilt is made of all cotton fabrics, like Grunge from Moda for Ellie herself. We have several posts about the making of her, plus some shower pictures where she was used as decoration.
