A Fun Chenille Quilt

I'm making a fun chenille, minkee, embroidery blanket for a special little girl who is about to be 6 years old. Many years ago, I collected chenille scraps and knew they would come in handy one day. This special little girl loves fabric that has a soft texture so I'm hoping she'll love what I'm making. There were some chenille pieces that were in pretty bad shape but I loved the raised flowers that could still be salvaged. I cut the flowers out and used Jude's 'halo applique' technique, that I learned in a recent online class, to apply it to another piece of chenille. Here are some pictures of the quilt in progress. I will post a picture when it is complete. Need to search out some fleece pieces for the backing.

I have never used chenille. Interesting how we evoke around Jude. I think of her every single day - Can't wait to see it finished - Hugs Nat
