|Today is my grandson's 5th birthday. Here is the posting showing the quilt top and a brief story about this quilt. The quilting took me a long time to complete, but it's finally done and now my grandson can sleep under his new quilt. I think I might make a miniature version of this to hang on his wall too, maybe in different colors. |
|Chinese lanterns in green batik fabrics. These were pieced blocks. I added the embroidery of the loop at the top of the lanterns and the tassels at the bottom along with the ball applique, which I did my hand.|

|I quilted each lantern differently. This one I quilted by following the design of the fabric.|
