This is my second entry into the festival. This is Jack and Friends For Brady, and I'm entering it into the Small Quilt category. Clicking on that link will take you to the page where you will find all the quilts entered into this category.
Jack and Friends" advertising their website, All People Quilt, and asked me to make it for him. So I did this past September, so he could go home, once again, with a new quilt!

This child loves quilts. Loves. Sadly, his mother (how can she be carrying my genes?) does not. I quilted it with glow in the dark thread, and boy, did we have fun downstairs, he pushing the "gas pedal", me steering, quilting this baby! He'd run to the light switch, hit it, I'd leave my sewing machine light on until he got beside me, and then I'd hit it, and there'd be a few seconds of silence while our eyes adjusted....
Ooh, look at that!
Can you see your name?
Can you see mine?
Nana, can we quilt some more now?
|Rocco our pittie, loves kids; Brady loves Rocco, but is sadly allergic to dogs and cats. Rocco also loves quilts!|
I did 12 blocks instead of the 9 in the original pattern, and I changed the outer border to make it bigger. Rather than doing prairie points, I made it into a sawtooth border. I bought the jack-o'-lanterns fabric, the purple owls and the bats; the rest is all scraps and stash fabric.
It's on his bed now as a topper; it's just a small lap quilt measuring approximately 36X42".
On Friday, Oct. 30, voting opens, so visiting Amy's Creative Side then will allow you to select your favourite quilts in each category. BUT! You can also vote your 3 favourite quilts out of the entire festival in the Viewers' Choice Category by clicking here. There is still a little time to enter, and there are some fabulous prizes to be won!
My first entry, Parisville Weave, is here.
I'm also linking this post up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts. Check out her fantastic eagle block she showed us today. Love it.
