Mermaid bed set complete!!!

Whooo Hooo! I finished it today and couldn't take it anymore and showed it all to Gweniveve and let her have it early (her birthday is monday).

I finished the top and sent it off to my quilter since I wanted it quilted with bubbles which was just to perfect for this quilt for me not to spend the $ and have her quilt it.

Blue Mermaids for Gwen


Then I was working hard on pillows for the bed. I got a little tired and didn't make the pillow sham & the huge 22" log cabin that I was going to and just finished these 2 pillows. I still might make the other 2 soon.

Mermaid pillows


The quilt is 87" x 72". I didn't need to make it a large twin since she has bunk beds and there is no need for overhang to hid a mattress.

Mermaid bed complete!


Needless to say I am giddy & so is Gwenieve. This was my gift to her for her 5 birthday which is on Monday but I couldn't wait any longer to show her the finished product.

Mermaid bedroom set


Here is a HUGE thank you to everyone that swapped with me so that I could get these fabrics to make Gweniveve her dream quilt. I only had to buy 2 FQ's of these mermaids everything else I was able to swap for from all my amazing friends.

Loves it.


See I was not lying when I said she is obsessed with the Little Mermaid. She own's a billion of them :) Plus all 3 of the Disney Little Mermaid movies and all the dress-up plus so many other things in her bedroom that are not pictured.

Mermaids galore


Now that it is on the bed I really can tell that I need to make another one for the top bunk. GULP. I have fabric left over but hardly any of the mermaids especially the aqua mermaids are all gone :( It is on my list to make another one in a different pattern.

I took a video of her as she walked into her room but it is taking forever to upload to youtube so I will come back to add it to the blog so you can all enjoy! Here it is!

Love your pillows and quilt! Your next one could be a circle quilt--the circles being bubbles :)

Diane said...

What a sweet quilt! She obviously loves it!

Kelly said...

It was totally worth parting with some mermaids to see your girl so happy with her new quilt! You did a great job on the quilt and the pillows! I know she will treasure it always!

Jennifer said...

how sweet! she is darling and surely deserves such a special quilt. i'm sure she'll cherish it for a long time.

Awww, that was adorable. I love how she was distracted at first by the missing ladder--that's something my boys would do too. And that Penelope(? was that what it was?) doesn't have a bed yet, lol. She's the big girl with the big girl bed--NOT Penelope. Isn't it funny how kids are the same everywhere? You should be proud, it's beautiful!

Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! I love the blue sashing - it fits perfectly to the mermaids.

Crystal said...

SO cute! Just like my boys too..."wait where's the ladder?". And all her "pallows"...cute little thing. :) Good job mama!

Jeni said...

It turned out so adorable! And Gwen is so cute! :)

Gorgeous. Oh how I wish that fabric wasn't out of print, being named after a mermaid myself. What a lucky gal.

Anna said...

It is so so cute, all of it! And isn't it fun when they really like something? I love that. My oldest loves pandas so I'm trying to plan to make some fun stuff for her upcoming birthday.
