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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
