L's quilt...DONE

Last month I finished the quilt for my niece. When she saw it, she smiled so big, like should couldn't believe it was really for her. She told my husband the quilt wasn't a present...it was a surprise.

Below are some photos of the quilt...I had the most fun quilting it. I quilted it at home on my domestic machine, and I used a different pattern in each square. It took a long time to finish the entire thing..but since I love the actual quilting part the best..I enjoyed every minute of it. And L's smile...that made all the hours worth it.

This is how the quilt looks on a twin sized bed.

I made it bigger than the bed so that it would hang over the edges.  

Happy Sewing!!

About Me

Welcome to Calico Cali Designs! I’m Kat, digitizer and sewing enthusiast. I learned how to digitize in 2010 from master digitizer Walter Floriani…it was an amazing experience. Soon instead of spending my time sewing, quilting and stitching out other people’s embroidery designs, I was sewing, quilting and stitching out my own embroidery designs. I created this blog, not only as a place to share my embroidery designs, but also as a place to share all the things I make, sew, paint, embroider, and create. You’ll see posts about my life, my studio, patterns I’ve sewn and products I’ve tested. I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them.
