We're hopping again!. This time our letters are P,Q, & R.
But before we leave I thought I would show you Parasol Princess since its a "P" quilt and is made out of my new Front Porch Line.
This little quilt - really it's not so little - it's 58" x 58" - got started many years ago when I picked up an antique "Southern Belle" block at a flea market. She had embroidered arms, neck, shoes and parasol handle.
Years later, my very pink and white granddaughter Lilly fell in love with the Disney Princesses. I used the Southern Belle block to make her a quilt of all the princesses but I do appliqué so I appliqued the arms, neck, etc.
When I decided to make it a pattern I darkened the background using Front Porch fabrics so that things would show up.
And Lori did an awesome job of quilting as usual.
I'm usually not a "girly girl" but I just
love my Parasol Princesses. They are really
challenging to appliqué
so I'll be doing a tutorial on them in April. My April "Table Stand Quilt" is going to be
April Showers and will be the same block only smaller. Anyway, I'll be showing you all how I put them together to appliqué.
The quilt kit on special today is Ring Around the Posie. (P,Q,R). Here's the pattern picture and the quilt on my bed.
The color on both of them is really not true.
This is really closer to the real colors.
Anyway, it's 15% off today.
Whew - lets go see what people are up too.
