You just know that any time you start a project and it starts with this:
...you are bound to enjoy the finished results. A few years ago I joined Sew-Sisters' Kona Club. Then I stopped for about 18 months because I felt like I had more fabric than brains. However, one Aviatrix Medallion quilt, one Pointy Quilt and I felt the need to hop back on the train. These are my colour-coded drawers now.
So one of my nieces turned 11 earlier this year and if you know anything about 11-year-old girls, it's that they are OBSESSED with unicorns. And this particular 11-year-old is also obsessed with rainbow-colour-order. God love her.
Clearly, Lisa the Unicorn was on order.
|That mane is my favourite part. And it left me with a really pretty rainbow ordered scrap.|
It wasn't long before I had most of the pieces put together so I could get a vision of what the final product would look like. Giant, sparkly excitement.
Then...before I knew it, the front of this massive floor cushion was done.
My grandmother (the other quilter in my family) helped my niece make a rainbow quilt this fall and I thought that a big floor cushion she can lay on the floor with a read would make a nice, coordinated addition to her room. I quilted the background in teal swirls which looks cool with the metallic and then quilted her mane like hair.
Now I want to create my own herd of unicorns. Totally unacceptable though...right?
So I made myself a Sparkly Sloth instead.
