So, without further ado, here is my entry for the festival. This quilt was also shown in a previous post earlier this summer, but since nearly all of my 2012 finishes are intended as holiday gifts, they can't be unveiled just yet.
Two years ago when I retired, a friend and coworker (and now my up-the-hill neighbor) was in the middle of a major destash effort, and I was the lucky recipient of several boxes of great vintage fabrics, from fat quarters to multiple yard pieces - PLUS two big boxes of quilting books and magazines - now THAT is a retirement gift!
So, with all these great fabrics, including some vintage 1980s and 90s Cranston prints from my own stash, and a cute little teddy bear family panel print I'd picked up along the way, early this spring I began this fun little scrappy quilt. Intended more for a toddler age child rather than a newborn, the finished quilt measures 50x62 inches.
