a thing of beauty is a joy forever

Myfriend had a baby shower this week and I wanted to make something special for her.
She has always loved Willy Wonka and so I picked up a new copy of the book for her to read to the baby
I love the illustrations by Quentin Blake and was inspired by them.
I embroidered Willy Wonka, the children, and an Oompa Loompa onto white cotton and made a simple 16 patch quilt with a buttery yellow and a fun purple swirl. The back is a soft green flannel and I quilted it myself by simply stiching around the squares with a zig zag stitch.
It was so much fun to make and so much fun to give!
