Fab Tue and Vintage Squares Quilt from Meg

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 :) 

Your turn!
