Another finish! Ahhh...feels so nice. So this is my sweet and special quilt for my baby girl. You know, the "one". I really wanted to do sweet, floral and a vintage feel. When I saw Granny Squares popping up all over I knew it was a great design for what I wanted.
I had a fat quarter bundle of California Girl from Fig Tree Quilts which the quilt is mostly made of. There is some Sandi Henderson prints and a couple of prints from Amy Butler's Lark. Sashing is Kona Bone.
Off it went to Aunt Wendy for quilting. Usually I just tell her to do her magic, whatever design she wants. This time I just told her I want it super feminine, floral, girly :) I think she did it! Lots of flowers, vines, leaves. Make me happy.
I continued the design on the back for a little interest. I had a yard of the pretty coral lace print (from Michael Miller not sure who designed it) and so adding the strip of squares was not only fun but necessary. I always moan about piecing a back but I don't think I've ever regretted it.
I can't remember and I don't want to dig it out of "things for baby girl" trunk, but it's roughly 40 x 50. Perfect crib size and I'm pretty sure it will be the quilt for her bed.
There you have it! If baby girl had a name I'd probably name the quilt after her, but her name so far is baby girl or sister :)
