Sorry to be posting a wip in the completed projects topic, but I am too excited to wait - don't know when I will have a chance to finish this one, as I am really busy right now.
First, a bit of backstory. I got inspired by a quilt featured in the book Quilts Baby by Linda Kopp. so I decided to make a lift the flap quilt for my friend's daughter, who turns 2 in December. Sarah has two grandmothers who quilt and craft, so I have always been a bit intimidated to make anything for her - she has truckloads of gorgeous quilts, knitted clothes, bags etc. Anyhoo, I just decided to get stuck into it, and finished the centre quilt top over the weekend.
I hadn't planned to make is so long and thin, so will be adding wide side borders and narrow top and bottom borders in the gray and white dots.
If you look closely you can see that some of the orange patches have little flaps on top. There are 17 flaps altogether, spread over the quilt top.
Here is one flap....
When you lift the flap....
There is a picture! Cute Donkey!
What's under this one?
What about this one?
Here are some of the others
Trucks (wouldn't want to be too gender stereotyping)
snoopy and woodstock
a circus elephant
okay, sorry for all the pics. I am really happy with how this quilt is coming together. My daughter says it is her favourite ever. Hope you like it, and suggestions, comments and criticisms most welcome. Haven't fully decided on the backing and binding yet.
