First off: Sorry, but these pictures stink. I guess that's what we get when I try to spend more time with the fam these days. ;)
In any case, here's a sweet little baby quilt that I made for my dear friend, Sarah. Well, I guess I really made it for her new baby, Anne Margaret. "New" is a relative term, of course; I think that the quilt squeaked in just under the wire for Baby's six-month birthday.
Anyhow, no more quilt guilt, right?!
I just love these fabrics. It is the "Posy" line by Aneela Hoey, and oh my - it took me over a year to cut into them, I do believe.
When these fabrics are all sitting in a stack, they just don't seem to go together. Something about the coral color with a light pink and bright pink and the lavender then a mint green? But somehow, when it's all stitched up, well... it works!
I think it's all so sweet and innocent and vintage-looking.
I particularly love the girls reading books. Sarah was an English major in college, so I was hoping she'd dig this.
The backing is a whole cloth of those little girls reading.
This girl is reading a book titled, "The Big Book of Adventures for Girls." I love that!
And what could this one be doing? Journaling? Doodling? Writing her first novel???
And we have some bunnies and hens, too. Love them. And Elyse's half-polished finger. Hey, she's a good sport to always help with my quilt photography. :)
This was short and sweet because I'm in the middle of stitching up another baby quilt top! Hopefully, you'll see pictures of that one soon, too!
