Sophie's quilt top

loisflanOctober 20, 2011

My granddaughter loves orange and yellow, so here is her Christmas present. The quilt will be 45"x60" and will have a Minky backing in a color called "Mango." I'm taking it to a long-arm quilter this week for an overall pattern. I'm so excited to have it finished. I can't wait to give it to her.

This is so beautiful! Sophie will love it ~ you have to keep this a secret for a long time~lol. The colors are gorgeous.
Make sure your longarmer has experience quilting with Minky.
Ask about her experience specifically quilting with Minky as a backing. How many quilts? Ask for pictures. Take a piece of the Minky with you.
Please post a picture after it is quilted! Thank you.

Thanks for the great support from all of you generous women. I will post a photo of it when it's completed... maybe one of Sophie with her quilt too.

Great cheery colors and I love that pattern, too. I have a thing for star patterns.

LOVE IT, what a cheerful quilt. And with a Minke back, it will be so cuddly. I know she will be so very happy.
