One of my dearest friends, Brenda, gave me a piece of fabric last July and asked me to "make her something nice" with it. She has a thing for stars like I have a thing for ladybugs. She had purchased the fabric a while ago then didn't know what to do with it. My goal was to make her a Christmas (2011) gift with it but alas, I ran out of time.
This "huggy quilt" measures 27" wide x 58" long. It's made to be a wrap (vs. a full quilt) so that she can wrap herself in a hug whenever she needs one.
The pattern was very simple, as you can see. I used 5 different ivory / oatmeal tone-on-tone prints from my stash for the squares, and added in some light blue rectangles. I used Brenda's dark blue star print fabric for the appliqued stars, backing and binding.
I didn't realize how not-so-great these pictures were until just now and alas, the quilt is already in the mail so retakes aren't possible. I'm sure you'll get the idea!
Couldn't resist taking this photo in our awesome South Florida sunshine with a palm tree and puffy white clouds!
This is the embroidered quilt tag I made a few weeks back (post / tutorial here) but alas, I didn't take a photo of it on the quilt. *sigh* I have to get better at this picture taking stuff!
