Another "Mum and me" quilt completed.
Looking through my stash, I found two 6" x 35" strips of Care Bear fabric that I had purchased along with other strips years ago on eBay..put away & forgotten, until a couple of weeks ago.
Mum enjoys applique using her machine, so I dug further into my stash and found tone on tone of the 4 colours of the Care Bears. I designed a heart and got Mum to prepare the hearts for me to iron on, then she appliqued them onto a lighter shade than the heart.
I dug yet deeper into my stash and was VERY surprised to find a few yards of Care Bear fabric. I must have bought it while in the States quite a few years ago.
It all fell into place and I even had enough of the Care Bear fabric (just) for the backing.
I found a loopy star stitch to quilt it and then I used the plain blue for the binding.
It finished up being 50" x 60".
I didn't follow a pattern, just winged it AND it was all fabric & wadding from my stash.
Now Mum wants me to find another project for her to start on.
Until next post....
