Dear Daughter Block of the month Quilt by Sherri Noel, Rebecca Mae Designs

Dear Daughter Quilt

It’s been almost a year since I finished my Dear Daughter Quilt but exciting things keep happening and I wanted to share more photos and info with you!
Dear Daughter Qullt Sampler

Pattern:

I now offer the pattern in PDF and Print. The PDF comes with ALL the alphabet templates so you can personalize the quilt plus the templates for the actual applique shown in the quilt sample. The Print Booklet has templates of the quilt applique shown in the sample (my quilt). All templates in PDF and Print are full size. Here are the links for the pattern:

Laser Cut Update:

This pattern uses a couple different approaches to applique. Last month I had an interview with Pat Sloan and I talked about offering laser cut applique option… The first company I checked into was far too expensive in my opinion so I’m still on the hunt to see if I can offer something reasonable. I will update you here if I find a suitable alternative. If you haven’t prepared fusible applique yourself, it’s quite easy and I have a little tutorial on prepping the letters to help you.

 

Tutorials:

Throughout the Block of the Month I shared some tutorials ~ you can find them easily here:

Needle Turn Applique – Butterfly

Needle Turn Applique – Words

Classes and Fabric Kits:

There are some shops running classes for the Dear Daughter Quilt and a couple are offering kits. You need to contact the shops direct and the kits are most likely limited.

Hand Quilting:

If you’ve followed my progress, you probably know that I decided to hand quilt with pearl cotton, I’m not sure I was of right mind when I made that decision (haha)… it probably came from my fear of machine quilting (I’m slowly getting over that by the way!)  but no matter what the motivation… big stitch quilting was the direction I went in!Dear Daughter Block of the month Quilt by Sherri Noel, Rebecca Mae Designs

The batting I used (Warm Company, Soft and Bright) allowed for 10″ between stitching which is more than I needed but I was happy that I had the flexibility to have some open spaces if need be.

I used pearl cotton 8 in a range of colors. You can find pearl cotton bundles in my shop if you want to give it a go yourself. I also have a hand quilting tutorial that might be helpful.

I took some close up photos for you. I mainly stitched straight lines and circles…

    I do so love this quilt and want to make one. It is on my list though my granddaughter is 15 now and I wonder if this quilt will transition for her by the time I finish it. Still it is on my quilt radar.
