Yesterday I heard from a high school friend, who is also a facebook friend, about (stay with me here) . . her parents have a friend whose 7 year old granddaughter has cancer. I want to make a quick quilt for her. I’m thinking disappearing nine patch. I need to get it done and in the mail. Help me decide which fabrics to use for a little girl.
No. 1 is a bundle of fat quarters, Piggy Pirouette by Benartex. I love that dancing pig . . but I only have 10 fat quarters. I don’t think that would a big enough quilt, even for a cuddle size. The pink is a rosy pink, the green is a dusty green and I’m not having any luck pulling fabrics from my stash that don’t look like “Hey . . she stuck an extra piece or two in.” That’s why I rarely buy collections of anything.
No. 2 is this fat quarter bundle. There are 18 fat quarters here and that’s plenty but I think this looks more boyish than girlish.
Out went the prints and the tone on tones stayed in. I’m kinda thinking of doing it using these fabrics and then using the stripe in the border. Do you think the floral is too big for a 7 year old? I’ll keep looking through my stash but please tell me what you think about these three options. And . . what size quilt should it be for a 7 year old for a snuggle quilt?
