It's Day 3 of the fabulous Fairy Tales Blog Hop hosted by the wonderful Joan of MooseStash Quilting. She has a fantastic group of quilty-minded friends lined up for this fun-filled blog hop. Find them all listed below! You'll want to visit each one!
Every little girl loves Fairy Tales - Every little girl falls in love with Unicorns at sometime in her life. OH! the stirrings of imagination! Castles, princesses & magical creatures! So a unicorn is a must for the wee-one in my life!
With thoughts of my Rainbow-loving, magical Grand-daughter in mind, I wanted to create something to celebrate her excitement.
I created my own take on the pattern - Reverse Applique Unicorn Quilt Tutorial from We All Sew At Bernina. You can find the original pattern at the link. Instead of reverse applique, I chose to go with a raw edge, whole cloth version. Using "Nightlife" by Chong-aHwang for Timeless Treasures Fabrics as the color foundation made this a fun project. It went together quickly for a sweet summer blanket!
*Note that some may be able to help me out with-- I tried out some metallic threads in the quilting to add Sparkle to the unicorn. The thread broke quite a bit....wrong needle, set tension????
And on another side note, I believe I’ll use a cheaper machine to use the metallic threads as I found lots of tiny metal shavings off the thread in my Bernina while cleaning g it after quilting was complete. Probably not good for the internals.
Leave me some tips or suggestions in the comments for a chance to win some left over project charms of "Nightlife". Follow my Blog for an additional entry! Winner will be chosen at random on the last day of the blog hop. Good Luck!
