A Lovely Year of Finishes - November Goal

Since I made my October goal just under the wire, I have a new goal to get a wall hanging quilted and bound for my granddaughter for Christmas.  This way it will be there on time!!
She loves purple and adores fairies so I made this little beauty for her.  I pattern tested this pattern for Willow Bend Creations.

They specialize in laser-cut applique, but for this I got to draw out the patterns, fuse the fabric and cut out every little, teenie piece!  I love how this turned out, but I would definitely buy their laser-cut patterns in the future.  Let's just say, my hands were killing me by the time I was finished!!!

I am linking up with Sew BitterSweet Designs for the ALYOF for November.

Your quilt is beautiful! I am sure your granddaughter will love it. Did you hand stitch the motifs are use a embroidery machine?
Either way they are stunning!

It's gorgeous and will be well received, I'm sure. I hope she realizes how much work there is in it and takes care of it.

I love the colour too and the fairies. I have a book, which was my Mom's, the flower fairies and it just reminds me of that. Your Granddaughter will love it. You do amazing work. Hugs, Susie xx

Oh my word, that is a lot of detail to cut out! Nicely done!
I have made one quilt in my life. While I was pregnant with my oldest, I took a hand-quilting class and made a baby blanket. It took an eternity, but I used the heck out of it with all 6 of my kids. It still looks like new. Perhaps one day I'll get a machine and learn how to use it, so I can make more (and bigger) quilts.
