Silly Sloths - A Commission

Quite a while ago a friend asked me to make a quilt for her as a commission (a gift for her friend) and I agreed.  She chose the Silly Sloths pattern.  It was an appliqué quilt and a pretty simple pattern.  The pattern was raw edge appliqué, and, although this is quick it isn’t my favourite technique; so, I decided to make faced.

I enlarged the pattern and did the face and body faced but the features are all raw edge appliqué.  I have to say - it is really CUTE!


Seriously cute!  I decided on 12 enlarged blocks instead of the 20 that the original pattern called for - less appliqué ;-)  And, I really like the bigger sloths.


It looked like we might be getting a storm, the light was perfect outside for photos, so, I made my oldest hold the quilt up for a few pictures.  The grey light makes the colours pop just a bit more.

I used a yellow flannel for the back, cotton batting and a few different Glide threads to quilt this cutie.  Glide is a go to for me.

Now - let’s hope that she likes the quilt when she sees it!  What do you think?  Will she like it?
