Wee Wander Quilt - Work in Progress

You saw from my last post how excited I was to have my hands on this fabric and what was even more special is that I was able to use this fabric to make a little girl her first ever quilt for her bed.

The fabric really does speak for itself so I decided to do minimal piecing to really show off the intricate imagery in the fabric line. Sarah Jane has amazing detail in her fabrics and Wee Wander is no exception. You are immediately transported to an amazing adventure with horses and deers frolicking in the woods and I can't help but smile every time I look at this fabric.

The Layout:
The front is a large fabric panel with 2 distinct borders. The panel "Wander Woods in Petal" is 2 yards x WOF. The first border "Nature Walk in Pink" is 2 1/2 inches the second border "Meandering in Petal" is 5 1/2 inches.

For the back I also utilised another large Wee Wander print "Summer Ride in White". To link the front and back of the quilt I added a 2 1/2 inch strip from the first border and a large strip of the outer border. If you look closely at the outer border there are tiny little footprints wondering through the roses it is quite exquisite.

The quilt top measures 57.5 inches x 87 inches.

This is now off to my longarm quilter for quilting.

Till next time.....happy sewing
