A quilt for Celestine

Celestine likes reading Peter Rabbit
Celestine was tired of sleeping in a sock so I made her this nice patchwork quilt to sleep under instead.  I thought it would be nice to make it sort of seasonal so there are lots of reds, oranges and yellows in it.  Celestine likes it so much that she is demanding we make another Christmassy themed one for December. I said: 'I expect you'll want another one for spring and then another one for summer too!?' and she said: 'Yes please. I like to have a selection.'  

Not demanding at all!

patches all laid out in order.
Celestine likes to help out.
the finished article!
goodnight Celestine. (really she's just posing here. As soon as this photo was taken she jumped right out!)
stars, stripes, leaves and flowers.

What do you think? Happy Monday everyone!

How sweet! I love that Celestine is reading The Tale of Peter Rabbit--Beatrix Potter--my favorite! Nighty-night, Celestine!

This is adorable how you have engaging posts about Celestine, this would be great for your upcoming book, the life and times of Celestine, her beginnings and her adventures. Her quilt is lovely. Great creative imagination you have, keep it up. Looking forward to more.

I am wondering if you have made more than one Celestine's cause you have another one with her eyes closed for sleeping. Very clever. I keep coming back to look again.
