This quilt has been on the back burner for way too long!
I asked Jane what colors she’d like for her quilt, and she said “unicorn colors”. From her collection of stuffed unicorns, I guessed that meant lots of pinks, aqua, teal, and some orchid.
As I was pulling fabrics for this quilt, I realized I have very few large scale prints in my stash….small prints and near solids are definitely my go to! They also feel like they can grow with her more, and if I buy patterned bedding in the future it will still match.
It took me forever to decide, but I finally settled on making her the Clover pattern.
Since moving my sewing area downstairs, I’m trying out this portable design wall by Fons and Porter. It feels identical to those vinyl picnic table cloths with the fuzzy backs on them….you could use one of those and I’m sure it would work perfectly!
I hung it with a row of Command Hooks, and I can easily hang it or take it down. I leave the hooks up and they are barely noticeable against my white walls.
So far, I like it! Blocks don’t adhere to it quite as well as they do to a piece of batting pinned to the wall…but I also don’t want to pin batting to my walls.
I’m so glad I bought extra of this Tula Pink fabric last year…it’s a perfect punch of color for the binding.
Kaitlyn quilted this one for me, I asked her to choose the quilting and she picked a perfect design!
Needless to say, that unicorn loving girl LOVES her quilt. I love that it can grow with her, but it still feels perfect for a spunky almost 5 year old.
I forgot to get a good photo of the backing, but you can see a hint of it below. It’s a floral with these same colors…I found it on sale at my local quilt shop (I’m not sure what the fabric is).
This was a super fun quilt to sew. Something about these “unicorn” colors are just so happy!
Fabrics: A big mix but if you want to know a certain one ask in the comments and I’ll try to find it!
