Sandy and I have been working on a new quilt pattern for most of the year. The pattern for this wall hanging is finally complete, ready for you to use–and we are celebrating! You can download it for free gifted-times-three-gbd.
The quilt depicts a tower of presents and a shower of confetti to up the fun factor for your gift. Another unique feature of this quilt is the three dimensional bow at the top. The bow is really a girl’s hair clip but we decided it would look great on this quilt! We’ve had so much fun hunting for just the perfect bow for each quilt.
Bonus: the bow adds some pizzazz to the quilt and it can be removed for washing.
It took us a while to figure out the best way to add our messages. Finally, we settled on a template made with a Cricuit(r) machine. They we used embroidery paint to fill in the template. I think it would be totally cute to embroider or free-hand paint a message for your quilt.
After Sandy made her quilt, I had to be a copy cat! I made one for my son and his fiance for their wedding shower. It turned out fabulously (she said modestly) so we hung it above the gift table! Their wedding colors were sea foam green and coral, a nice combination for a wedding wall hanging AND I was fortunate to find a hair clip in just the right color. This quilt is now hanging on a wall in their apartment above the kitchen table, way to score big with the mother and mother in law!
Instead of a solid white background for the wedding shower quilt, I used a white tone on tone polka dot fabric. It added some nice visual texture with the other colors and patterns.
But wait, there’s more! I also decided to use up some scraps and make a third wall hanging out of some girlie prints that were left-over from another project.
THEN I found the most amazing hair clip to add–makes it look even more sweet and girlie, don’t you think? All the static in the air almost makes it look like an octopus or something, but it’s really a feather boa type hair clip! I just love the colors in this one!
We hope you have some occasions in your life you can commemorate with this quilt. We’d love to see yours, send some photos on the Gray Barn Designs Facebook page or on Pinterest.
