I seldom make baby quilts, however this makes the fourth I’ve done in the last several weeks, and I have one more that’s almost finished. All five will be going to the Little Lambs Foundation based in Utah as part of this year’s Hands2Help Challenge.
I really liked the simplicity of the 7 Seas design, from McKay Manor Musers, which I used for Deep Blue Sea. Here too, I chose to deviate from the original puppy or kitty design and instead used a dinosaur for the applique to match the dinosaur fabric in the second horizontal block. For the quilting, I stitched veritical lines in each block, using the lines from the striped fabric as my template.
The name is inspired by two things: one being the peach fabric backing that was taken from a bed sheet. The second is my three and a half year old granddaughter, who likes to pretend that she is a dino-dragon called Peach. I’m not exactly sure what period dino-dragons lived in, but from her play acting, they were certainly a fierce creature not to be taken lightly 🙂
This will be included in this year’s Hands2Help Challenge being hosted by Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict @fabricaddictquilts. I will be sending this quilt to Little Lambs Foundation for Kids @littlelambsfoundationforkids
