Fairy Variation

This weekend it was my niece’s fourth birthday. Imogen features on the “Imogen is a Fairy” quilt.


She just loves this quilt, but I am mean and I keep it as a sample. She only gets to see it when she comes over.

I wanted to make another one for her birthday. I took this photo of her on Friday…


Her eyes are the most amazing colour. So I decided to make her another fairy quilt before her birthday party on Sunday, using this photo. Nothing like a little last minute pressure to get you moving!

Generally when I make the Imagine That… quilts I make the photographs grey scale – just to take out any background or distraction. This one I printed onto the fabric in colour because she was wearing the fairy crown and her eyes are so lovely. I also enlarged the fairy templates and one flower on the photocopier. I wanted it to be a little bigger so she could put it on her bed or use it on the couch. I am quite pleased with how it all turned out.


Needless to say, she loves it.
