I've been wanting to make one of these for a while, but needed a good excuse to do it. I'm a complete amature when it comes to applique, but I'm willing to try anything. I should be a novice at applique by the time I finish my boy's quilts. Lots of applique! So, when a neighbor came over last week to see about having a vinyl board made, I suggested this instead:
She will be attaching ribbons and hanging this from an existing shelf in the baby's room. I let her choose her fabrics to match the room and I love how it turned out. The name is appliqued onto muslin and then I did a triple quilted frame around it and then the whole piece is stretched and stapled to a blank canvas. This would have made an adorable pillow too. Well, she hasn't seen it yet, but I hope she likes it as much as I do. Maybe I like it so much simply becuase it's girly...Baby Jane is the 4th girl in their family. We can't seem to figure out how to make girls at our house.
