Tinkerbell Quilt

A good friend has asked me to make a quilt for her granddaughter for Christmas.

Purchased the Tinkerbell material on line from Fabric.Com.  Whenever I have trouble finding a certain pattern always go to this website.  I can usually find what I'm looking for there if I cant find in local stores.  After receiving Tinkerbell, shopped locally for the other materials to make the quilt.

It only took two days to design, cut and sew together the quilt, made for a twin size.  Lucky for me I had not started to quilt it right away.  Received phone call, change of plans, little girl is no longer in a twin bed, now needs a full size quilt.  I don't usually like to make excess borders just to make a quilt larger, but since the quilt was done, and all the Tinkerbell used, I had to enlarge borders.  It still turned out pretty.

I tried something new this time, never did it before, I did a machine sewn binding front and back.  Its prettier than this picture shows.  And yet again, the camera dulled the colors. They are lavender and turquoise.  Also used a new stencil for the stitching.  I like it very much, even though it took a great deal of time to do.  This quilt measured 86x101 so large enough for a full drop and pillow tuck.
