Bloggers' Quilt Festival: Branching out

Happy Bloggers' Quilt Festival!

This is a little quilt I whipped up using some chenille my friend gave me.  There's a LOT more chenille where this came from, so I'm slowly working my way through it.  I decided to branch out and put some fabrics together that I normally wouldn't.  And I have to say, it turned out MUCH cuter than I thought it would.  This quilt is probably headed for Project Linus...hope some little girl enjoys it!

I only used fabric from my stash on this one and was thrilled at how well the backing and chenille (and yellow dotty and pink striped stuff) all tied together.

  1. I have a piece of chenille a friend gave me and no idea what to do with it. I might just try something like this, very cute!

  2. This turned out really cute! Some little girl will love to hold it and pet the soft parts of it. Nice job!

  3. I'll bet it's loved wickedly! Too cute

  4. How did I miss this?? It turned out so cute! I love the stripes and the chenille is fun too! Good work!
