It's a Girl!
I have been saving these fabrics for such a long time. I love all of them, but I thought they were too girly for the grandsons. And now, I have a reason to create with them. In fact, I have a plan and have already started cutting.
Then there are the pinks. I have lots and lots and lots of pinks. I have one quilt top finished and you can bet there will be more soon. I love being able to use these pinks.
Then there are these two Sarah Jane prints. I don't know if they will be quilts or not. They would be adorable dresses. Have to think on that. She's still brand new and tiny.
I love this print too. I think it would make a great quilt back. I hate the thought of cutting it up.
More pretty pinks and flowers. I am over the moon to have a granddaughter to sew for, can you tell?
I love the old fashioned look of these Heather Ross Tiger Lilly prints. Something good will come out of these too.
Remember this? Well I got busy last week and quilted it up in just a couple of hours. I always felt it looked pretty girly. I love the way it turned out.
And I used an Anna Maria Horner fabric for the back. It's from the Innocent crush line. This quilt came out so soft.
Then there's this one. I know it's sideways, but anyway, I pieced this a couple of years ago and had long hoped to quilt it. So last week I decided to get it done. I love how it turned out.
It's soft and sweet and not too girly, but maybe just a little bit girly. I was hung up on how to quilt it, so I went with straight lines and I think it worked out great.
And I had a bunch of the dots, so that became the back and the dark blue Squared Elements made the perfect binding. Stay tuned. Lots more baby girl quilts to come.
