I have to tell you… I’ve been hoarding this fabric… It’s the Terrain line from Kate Spain for Moda fabrics… I loved it the instant I saw it (almost 2 years ago I think), and bought 2 charm packs, and maybe a jelly roll too… But then couldn’t use it ’cause it needed to be used for the perfect quilt. Well, my beautiful niece Kaitlyn graduated this spring with an esthetician license and I just knew that it would be perfect for her!! I pieced the center when I went away to my quilting retreat in February, and then the week of her graduation I added the borders and quilted it… I think it’s beautiful (it’s only the second quilt that I’ve quilted myself… so don’t look TOO close at the back :), and even better, she loved it!! Here’s a few pictures of it that I took just before I sent it to her… (click on the pictures to see them bigger)
Notice the little helpers feet behind :)
And a couple of closer shots…
I’m so glad that she loved it, and I’m so proud of her!! Not only did she graduate from her program, took the test and got her license, but she also got a job working at a spa!! The quilt pattern I used is the Missouri Star Quilt Company Disappearing 9 patch pattern… I’ve used this pattern before on the baby quilt and a couple others… You can find the video tutorial HERE. Thanks so much for taking a peek!!
