Nothing like starting the year off right… please welcome the first completed Whimzie quilt of 2017!
I love it when a client lets the child a quilt is meant for be part of the custom quilt creation process. I usually provide 3-4 designs for a customer to choose from when they are first thinking about having a quilt made. When it’s a kid making the choice, they gravitate to the brightest, happiest, most-est fun option. Every time, without fail. Kids are the best!
Which is how I ended up working on this super cute quilt. Little Katherine wanted a cat themed quilt in her favorite color. She fell in love with the whimsical cats on the feature fabric and I pulled the purple 1, purple 2 and purple 3 colors (with a blue accent) directly from it. The repeating block is a mix of a traditional four corners block and a classic four crowns block that I christened the FOUR PAWS block, just for her design.
I included a coordinating sham as a thank you for this order. Together, the set turned out “purr-fect”. I hope she enjoys cuddling up with them all through her childhood – and beyond!
