Fancy Forest times two....

Both of my sweet granddaughters had birthdays this summer.
 
 
(making fruit pizza - one of our favorites at grandma's house)
 
I decided to make each of them a Fancy Forest quilt with their names on them.
It's an Elizabeth Hartman pattern - she's brilliant! 
You can find the pattern here.
Miss Audrey....
(we had a tea party at my neighbor's home so we got to dress up with some pretties - thank you, Danette)
 
 
 I made individual quilts for each of them.
They each finished at about 60" x 70"
 
 
Audrey likes the color aqua... 
 
 
The backing is Tula Pink's "Free Fall". 
 
 
I quilted loops in the background and
straight-lined each block. 
 
 
I think the cows want a quilt, too... 
 
 
Miss Alayna...
 
 
Alayna loves pink...
 
 
This is probably my favorite block - Hazel Hedgehog. 
 
 
I used a cute pink print for the backing and a
scrappy binding. 
 
 
I swirled Alayna's background, outlined the small "fill-in" blocks and
straight-lined each individual block. 
 
  
 Picnics inside make the food even better! 
I loved having my girls with me last summer...
Alayna, Audrey and Erin - my daughter.
  
 
Oh, how I love my girls....

  3. Those are very cute quilts and cute girls! What fun! I am making the Elizabeth Hartman Fancy Fox pattern for my twin grandbabies. One leaning more blue green, one leaning more purple pink! The names are a secret though, we have to wait a couple months to find out!
