Q136 – Shuuush CK – Quilt

Good Day,

Andy and I would like to introduce you to our 136th quilt – Shuuush CK.

Shuuush CK - JS, AB, Dec 2015

A little boy has been growing like a week. He needed a larger quilt, and who are his Grandpa and Grandy but to spoil him. And the topics of the time, apart from cars and trucks and transformers and puzzles and pianos and books and, and, and… are Minions.

Dimensions of Shuush CK – Width 61 11/16” x Length 71 ½”. The Minions panel is about 34” by 41”. According to CK the three on the panel are Stuart, Kevin and Bob. We didn’t realize that a number of these little things have names… and who's to argue with a 3 ½-year old about cartoon characters.

And of course Andy and I did not want to place the main panel in the exact center of the quilt.

The diamonds were created from two other Minion Despicable Me Aqua Blue Stripe and Minions – Eyes on Yellow Cotton fabrics. We used a matched shade of blue for the backing, the border, and the binding.

Here are some more images of our Shuuush CK.
