Here's my latest finish. This cool grinch patchwork quilt. I made this in a lap/throw size so it's ideal for cuddling and story reading.
I actually bought the fabric last year but didn't get around to making stuff out of it until this year. Ce la vie.
I fussy cut quite a few of the prints to make sure that I featured these super cute characters.
For the back I used this green dot print. It's just perfect. It ties in all the colors from the front and gives you a little peace for your eyes.
I quilted it on each side of the patchwork squares. Nice and simple so not to take away from all the grinchy action in the prints.
These fabrics are from Robert Kaufmann and they're very nice. The best part was I bought some yardage of the fabric with nice big scenes from the story. I fussy cut out the best ones and made them into a couple of pillow covers.
Again, the colors in the fabric are just so spectacular. That blue is just lovely.
And, of course, I had to do something with my scraps.
This is an adorable little quilted patchwork pillow cover. The red piping is the perfect finishing touch.
I did make this Grinch collection with the purpose of selling them in my etsy shop so if you're interested be sure to check them out!
Also, my Christmas Tree ornaments are now 20% off so don't miss out on those either.
I've been busy with a few other behind the scenes types of things including a custom quilt order (I didn't share pics because she ordered the exact same quilt as the Iris quilt) and coming up with some gift packaging ideas for my baby quilts and doll quilt sets.
If you check out my instagram feed you'll see the quilt that I'm working on for my living room. I figured as a present to my family we finally ought to have a quilt to cuddle with ourselves while we watch our favorite holiday shows.
