This quilt is number 13 for Breagha, if you count the little lap quilt that I made for her.
All started with Moda's lil rascals charm packs. I have been purchasing these on Ebay and using them sparingly on other quilts I have made for Breagha. There were four packs left and I decided not to hoard them any longer but just go ahead and use them up in a quilt made exclusively of lil rascals.
I just love charm packs......whoever invented them for quilters deserves alot of kisses and hugs.
One of my daughter's favorite quilts for Breagha is the Lollipop Quilt so I thought it would be fitting to use the same pattern for the Lil Rascals quilt - a tossed nine patch that uses a fabric line without any fillers.
The quilt measure 58" square, not a large quilt by any means, but not a small one either. Breagha has just gone from a crib to a toddler's bed so this size quilt will serve her for a few more years to come. I know, she already has so many this size but a child can never have too many quilts from Grandma.
Handquilted the entire quilt with flowers on the largest squares (4 and 1/2"), x's on the longer halved pieces, outlined all the straight lines, hearts in the borders to wrap it up with love. Used a brown quilting thread.
Backed the quilt in white, so the brown quilting thread I used is very dominant on the back.
Used a dark brown Kona solid for the binding.
Washed and ready to be boxed up and shipped to Scotland.
