Quilt for Anna-Clara

It was a very satisfying experience this week to finish this small quilt for my granddaughter, Anna-Clara.

Even though I keep saying that Magic Binding is not appropriate for all quilts I still keep finding quilts to use it on and this one was no exception.

I have had some pink minky fabric in my stash for some time.  I have always felt it should be appropriate for a young child's quilt.  With wanting to make this one as tactile as possible I was pleased to be able to incorporate the minky fabric into the back of the quilt.

When I was half way through putting the binding on I realised I had not made a label for the quilt so just for fun I made a small label and put it on the front on the bottom right.  I pinked the edges - just another bit of texture for small hands to discover.

What a lucky granddaughter you have. She will cherish this heirloom all her life. And I love the label. Jan from Sew and Sow sent me to check out your blog. I'm so glad I did! It's lovely!
