the fara




remember this quilt top that i didn't know what to do with?
well, it found the perfect home.


my friend, jennifer, who i havent seen in a couple years
requested it for her adorable little girl, fara.
we talked a couple details and off i was, worked on the backing.
i love that it's not perfect.
none of my quilts are even close.


then off to the quilters', who rushed it for me before i left for MO.
look how yummy crinkly it is after being washed:



jennifer had the great idea of a personalized pillow to go with, 
so i incorporated some black and white polka dots for the binding that complimented the 
birds in the pattern, and also the pillow.

i'm starting to fall in love with hand stitching the binding...

and lastly, the small 10X10 pillow for the little miss.
i embroidered her name in the middle and framed the outside with the coordinating black fabric:







thanks jennifer!
i had so much fun making these for fara.
i hope you both enjoy!!!
