I have another grand daughter who we are expecting in August :)
It's always a miracle to experience being a grandmother, seeing each special little spirit and who they look like!
I bought this kit at Pine Needles about 5 years ago, I fell in love with it. So much so, that I bought a girl kit and a boy kit.
I made the blue one for Benjamin, you can see it here.
This is what the main panel looks like without being pressed :)
I think it's so cute and vintagy!!!
Here are the lovely fabrics, there is even a white eyelet.
This is the softest minky!
It will be used for the border and the back.
Aren't these babies darling?
I cut all that fabric into l l/2" strips.
Then I sewed the strips together in pairs, some by fours.
I had lots of these combinations.
In the meantime, I fussycut the baby fabric into 4 l/2" squares.
I barely had enough, I had to piece one of the squares.
After much measuring, cutting, sewing and pressing, I ended up with these stacks.
Here is the finished quilt top :)
I can hardly wait to bundle up my little grand daughter in this soft, snuggly quilt.
I'll show you more photos when I get it quilted in July.
These are my favorite little blocks, "soooo sleepy" and "daddy's girl".
"Rub-a-Dub-Dub" and "Peek-a-Boo!"
This quilt is called "Marley Jane" by Remember When Pattern Co.
