And Another One.

When we were waiting for this last grand baby to arrive, I had the first quilt (from my last post) well under way and nearing completion. But I had the bug to also make a just in case quilt. I wanted to make one that was specifically for a little girl.

At that stage we had no idea  whether the baby would be a boy or girl, so I thought I would take a chance, and if it was a boy then the quilt could go into storage. As it turned out we have a lovely little grand daughter, so she received two quilts.

It is made using Sherbert Pips.

I had bought fabrics from this range quite a few years ago and tucked them away for a rainy day.

I kept the quilting very simple with straight lines following the blocks. The red fabric in the border was also used to make up some extra blocks. I used straight line quilting through the border, too.

The backing used the gorgeous scarves design and was also used for the binding.

I do like the characters in this fabric. It is a gorgeous design from Aneela Hoey.

I am very pleased this quilt did not have to go into storage. It will be great to see it being used.

I do hope your week is going well.

Cheers, Karen
