Wild Thing Quilt

 In February 2011 I finished piecing 
Wild Thing
a quilt for my grand daughter.
And then with the move, the quilt top
was put away in a box.
Out of sight,
out of mind.
 With my grand daughter's 3rd birthday
fast approaching,
I did some hunting through boxes
and found the top.
Pat Roche kindly helped me out
and did the machine quilting in just a few days.
I love the swirls she added,
which really make this
quilt pop.
 This was such a fun quilt to work on.
I even crocheted my own ric rac by following a 
 I'm am a beginning crocheter, and the ric rac was easy to do.
I think it adds a nice handmade touch
from grandmother
for a sweet grand daughter:)
 Fabric line:
It's A Hoot
by MoMo for Moda
Owls are so popular right now, and these colors will
match my grand daughter's bedroom
 I continued the border fabric on the back and
also used it for the binding.
 The twisters are made from
5" X 5" Charm squares.
Happy Birthday Kayla!

It's beautiful, I'm sure she will love it! The crochet is so pretty, it adds the perfect touch. I have never crocheted before, I would be nervous to try that. Wild Thing is on my long "to do" list, I have always loved that pattern. Your friend did a great job with the quilting :)

So sweet Nedra - and the handmade rick rack IS the perfect finishing touch! My little guy is just moving into a twin sized bed from his crib, and I think I need to make him a new quilt for Christmas, yes? LOL
