Lions and Tigers and Bears - Oh My!
Kids quilts are always fun to make! They are bright, colorful and hopefully make you smile. We have two little neighbor girls who have birthdays within days of one another - so naturally I made some quilts as gifts.
Parker is a shy, silly and completely endearing little girl turning 3. She has a stuffy lion named Bashful, so I decided to make her the lion from our Zoey’s Zoo pattern. I pulled assorted yellow and orange fabrics for the lion face and put it on a fun cloud background. I bordered this with a leafy green fabric in the wonky churndash and a whimsical safari print as the border. The back fabric is a fun cuddle cloud print, perfect for snuggling.
Gianna, our little neighbor who is turning two and learning to talk, loves to stand on her deck and have a conversation with our pups! She says, “Hi Shelby, Hi Elsie!” So, of course she needed a dog quilt! I used our Finley’s Farm pattern. The pup is on a fun cloud fabric, the wonky churndash is an adorable orange fabric with all the sounds animals make and I found the cutest Weiner dog fabric for the borders. Both quilts have a soft fluffy backing and were quilted with modern straight lines.
