A few months ago I found out my friend was expecting a baby. I worried about what I would make for them...obviously it would be a quilt but what kind of quilt? What fabric? Then a shipment of Castle Peeps landed on my doorstep and it all fell into place.
Stacy and I met at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival years ago and we both share a passion for ye' olden days.
Stacy loves horses.
The nursery would be green and brown.
I love improvisational and slightly wonky log cabins.
Making this quilt was a dream from start to finish. I enjoyed every second of its construction, something I've never been able to say about a quilt before. Everything went together perfectly, the improvisational front and back turned out exactly how I envisioned them...even naming the quilt was easy.
It's called "Couchant on a Field Vert". Do you remember when Springfield Elementary had a "Medieval Faiyieyre"? Millhouse's coat of arms was a Spider-Man couchant on a field vert. Couchant means lying down and Field Vert is a green background.
Just think of a baby couchant on this quilt...sweet, right?
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and if you haven't already, please check out the rest of the amazing quilts up for display at the Blogger's Quilt Festival. And thanks to Amy for hosting it again this year!
