  1. I saved this in my Inbox to read ‘later’ and only just now clicked on it, doh! I love how it turned out Roseanne! Of COURSE it had to have Minky backing, but oh do I ever love your background fabric too. Your sweetie pie looks super adorable all nestled up under it in her bed. Such precious things we do for our oh-so-precious littles. 🙂

    A lovely quilt to be treasured for many many years.

  4. A beautiful finish for a sweet girl. They never see the errors, just the love that goes into the quilt. She’ll love it all the more when she gets older. Though mine went through the stage where her beloved Little Mermaid quilt needed to be given away because she’d out grown it. Now she likes that it’s up in the closet to pass on.

  5. Oh my gosh it turned out so lovely!!! Addie looks great and snuggled up under it! I love the colors and the lay-out! I know this project was a challenge but you and Sue really hit it out of the park! It’s great ! Have a safe and happy day!

    Hooray for Addison’s birthday and her quilt. You and Sue did a marvelous job on this, working your way through each challenge. I love the way you fixed the final problem, that almost no one will know. It is so fabulous and such a beautiful quilt, I am sure she will love having this to cuddle underneath.

  8. Be still my heart! Roseanne it is a sweet a finish as we could ask for in spite of (or perhaps because of the issues 😉). Well done! It’s perfect and I’m sure your little ballerina was smiling from ear to ear.

  9. Your perseverance has paid off, Roseanne! This is absolutely gorgeous. That picture of Addison underneath it is so darn cute!! I bet that minky fabric is soooo soft and cuddly! Great job and great ingenuity to handle the snags!

    Oh my goodness, talk about persevering through multiple obstacles! Congrats on getting that ginormous quilt finished! It turned out beautifully. I love seeing the photo of Addison and Chase admiring it. She will always treasure this gift of love from her aunties.

  12. Oh my it is huge. What a big quilt, but gorgeous. I appreciate the juggling to make sure the minky would fit on the back. It is hard with that at the best of times but when it’s just a little short. Been there! I think you did fantastically well. And minky is so cozy, although at the moment I am trying to avoid it. I think all the hours put into this are just a glimmer of the love you have for Addison. I smiled at the she can’t have enough quilts. I am sure she will receive a few more in her future.

    Congratulations and a huge finish!! What a tale of challenges. Lucky it was warm for most of it. Addison looks so small under that quilt. Imagine Chase being that interested! This was truly a labor of love! Such wonderful photos throughout

    Yay for the finish, and how fun to see her snuggled under the quilt, sleeping, admiring it later, and I’m sure there will be plenty of twirling!

  17. Hooray for a finish, Roseanne! That quilt is perfect for Addi, and turned out beautifully. I’m sorry it give you such fits along the way, but you persisted! It is so satisfying to see your girl sleeping under a quilt you made, isn’t it?
