Let's Fly a Kite

 Our quilt guild had a little challenge...and we could "share them" today. The idea was to make a quilt that had at least twelve blocks...of any size/type...and the quilt needed to include a traditional elongated diamond shape of a kite.

This was my entry...and will be going to my grand-daughter that turns 3 years old the beginning of next year.

This photo was on my design wall, so borders had not been attached...but I think you get the idea. The little girl is dimensional applique and the kite is standard applique.

Here's the close up view of the little girl. Her hat, blouse, boots, and body are standard applique. The skirt is a couple of layers of lace...gathered and tucked under the vest before it was appliqued totally into place along that lower edge. The hat has a packaged flower attached. Her hair is made from long bullions using #5 variegated floss from Happy Hands.

The blocks are simple quick stack/whack neutrals. This quilt was fun and make up pretty quickly. It measures about 24 by 30 so should make a nice doll size quilt for Evie.
