Wee Wander Quilt for M

I am so excited to finally show off the Wee Wander quilt I made for my 5 year old Madelyn. 

I bought a leftover bundle of Wee Wander fabric from an Etsy shop at a discounted price.  It was a really good deal, even though it didn't have all of the prints in the line.  I could not pass it up!  
I can still remember the look on my 5 year olds face when I opened the package.  She fell in love and I knew I had to make her something.  

I decided to make her a quilt, but it was so hard to pick what pattern to use.  I didn't want to chop up the cute designs of the little children and deer!  I finally had the idea to use Camille Roskelley's Puddle Jumping Pattern and fussy cut the centers. 

Now this little girl was very anxious to get her quilt.  Everyday when I would ask her what we were going to do... She would say "Lets make some Wee Wander blocks, Mom!".   

Every time I would finish a block she would give me so much positive feedback!  "Mom, thats so perfect!"  "Ohhhhh!  I love it so much!"   "I cant wait to snuggle it, Mom!" 

The whole experience was perfect.  And now she has the perfect quilt to take with her through the years.

#SewDailyWithSewShabby June2014

I have to say - I am so impressed with the talent everyone has shared with our fun little campaign Sew Daily With Sew Shabby!  I wanted to take a minutes and show off some of the awesome photos that were shared!  




You all kick major quilting bootay!  I love you all!  Keep rocking it!  

I haven't been able to sew everyday like I wanted to when I had the idea for this campaign.  The idea I decided isn't necessarily sew everyday, just try to commit some time to yourself.  I shoot for a couple times a week or pick a day and make it my day to do what I like... SEW!
