Solstice Quilt for Ellery
by Andrea Wilson
This quilt was given as a solstice gift to my two year old daughter Ellery last year. I discovered how much I loved doing embroidery and was looking for a way to use all the cute designs from my Japanese craft books as well as a few from Sublime Stitching and Doodle Stitching.
I gave quilting a try by making my first quilt for my other daughter, Katrina (in the photo) and Ellery's is the second quilt I ever made. I have been quilting ever since. This year's solstice quilts are already done and waiting to be given. Though it might seem silly to give a gift of warmth when we are still having 90 degree days here in Los Angeles!
The quilt measures 39" x 53" and is machine pieced and quilted. The binding is sewn by hand.
