I couldn't resist this Unicornia quilt pattern by Claire Turpin Designs, and I'm so glad I didn't. It was so fun to make, and I loved choosing the Liberty prints for each unicorn. I especially loved creating the rainbows.
I feel like I must note though, for those interested in making this quilt, as perfect as I think it is, Isla's quilt is not exactly like the original. I feel like it's important to mention that - especially if you're using my pictures as a reference. Think of mine more as inspiration and follow Claire's pattern better than I did (giggle)!
Most importantly, despite the minor differences, Isla is thrilled. She couldn't wait to line up her unicorn friends in front of it and have a picture with ALL of her new unicorns. I think it's possible that I was glowing with pride.
Now for the borders, quilting and binding!!

This Christmas break has given me the opportunity to try a whole bunch of new patterns that I've been thinking about all year. This is the Dinosaur Softie - pattern by Dolls and Daydreams. He was SO easy to make!!! I would highly recommend this pattern for anyone, with beginners sewing skills, wanting to make a boys softie. Sarah's patterns are easy to follow and her photo instructions are the best!!
Find this Dinosaur pattern and plenty more here.

Half way through the appliqué and I can't decide if I love the unicorns or the rainbows more! Adding the eyes to the unicorns has added personality too.
Just keep going, just keep going...
