History for it goes like this: I have three kids who don't look anything alike..seriously. my first is a thick-haired-toe head, my second is a ringlety-red/strawberry/sherbert/gold-head, and then my third came out a dark-straight-thin head. My aunt on seeing them said, "you have neopaliten kids", I have called them that ever since.
(this was taken at a park today...my red heads hair is in braids so you can't see the curl..but sadly, this is one of the only pictures of them together taken recently. )
...soooo, I wanted to incorporate my kids in this quilt, being my first and all. and this is why the ice cream quilt was picked.
Everyone by now should have received a 'scoop' and 'cone' cut out. (let me know if you didn't. Teriney I sent yours with your June square, hopefully its to you by now.)
My goal in this quilt is that my kids are represented as well as You. (feel free to tweak the scoops, they were really more of a measurment then anything)
1. pick out a solid fabric (somethat that says 'you'), cut 14x14
vanilla, chocolate and strawberry, use iron- heat transfer paper and then cut out three of each (with each flavor you can choose the same fabric, or different as long as the 'flavor' is being represented)
4. decide your placement and then heat transfer your cones on the 14x14 fabric, and then do the same with the scoops. please leave a 1 inch boarder around the 14x14 fabric
You can choose how you want them stacked as long as each cone has three scoops on it
example- 3 chocolate on one cone....one vanilla and two strawberries on one cone...etc.
5. stitch around the cone edges, and the individual scoop edges
Any questions please let me know.(sorry if it's over- explained..its my first tutorial) and again, I want this to be fun and a way to show who you are in your square.
I can't wait to see what you come up with.
