Anne of Green Gables

Anne of Green Gable Mini Quilt

Last month I had the privilege of create this little quilt for a friend on Instagram for The Green Gable Swap. Quilts are new to me, I enjoy(most of the time) learning new techniques. For this little quilt, I painted on the fabric my version of Anne ( She probably saw Gilbert and maybe( just maybe) hits him in the head with her book.).
Because of the color Green on the title of Anne's story, I decided that the edges of the quilt should all be green too.
This pattern is called the Drunkard's path block, no as hard as it looks, with a little bit of patient anyone can master this technique , there are lost of tutorials online also. The flowers were a little challenging...trying to master a invisible stitchs wasn't the easiest task. But all in all I was very happy with the end result and I would like to try making another one someday... In the picture also my hand painted Ikea doll bed , a gift I made for my daughter this past Christmas.
Are you new to quilts ? Have you master a new techniques ?
Linking with : I have to say.
