It was intended to be made into a pocketed wallhanging, but I thought I would turn it into a Quilt for Kids donation. I had also purchased some of the coordinating fabrics:
I started out by cutting out the six "tutu fairies" and giving them a uniform, pink border:
Then I chose 6 of the smaller motifs to cut out and border with one of the coordinating fabrics:
I set the blocks together on my design board to see how they looked:
Cute, but rather small, since the blocks were only 6.5 inches wide. I decided to give each type of block another border. The tutu fairies got a basic white:
and the other blocks got a teal green:
When I put them together, it looked like this:
Now it just needed a few borders. I wanted to include the pink ballet slipper fabric from the coordinates, so that became the first border. Then a skinny dark pink border, and at last, a border of the tutu fabric.
Ta-Da! A quick and easy quilt that I hope a little ballerina will love. The turquoise castle fabric will be used with the castles in the panel to make a second quilt.
