baby girl quilt.

my friend kerry is having her third baby.
but her first girl.
and long awaited girl. 😉

so, i wasn’t sure what to get or make her, given the little amount of time i’ve had lately, but i decided at the very last minute (thursday. the shower was friday) that i could make a baby sized patchwork quilt.

kerry’s colors are pink and gray and white.
so, i made this:
baby girl quilt.

i think she mostly meant soft pink and soft gray, but that’s not really my thing and i don’t have many soft pinks. i also threw in some random charms that i had that were sort of girly. and sort of pink and/or gray. 🙂

for the back, i used these cute dancing girls. i scored about ten yards of two different prints in this free spirit line for $3/yard at ben franklin last week. so, you can expect every baby girl quilt i ever make to be backed in this.

the shower was fun. i think kerry liked it. and it was a good testament to how far my quilting abilities have come. not that it was an extremely difficult quilt to assemble, but i managed to make in a 24 hour turnaround. a year ago, that sucker would have taken me a week. 🙂

thanks for reading.

    Looks great Sarah. where is there a ben franklin crafts still in the area? I need to go check that out. I was very sad when they closed the one in Kernersville.

    Awesome job, on both the quilt AND doing it so quickly considering all the kids running underfoot! You are SuperMom!

    She gives me hope. Perhaps, if we have a third it will be a girl. Fingerscrossed. And IF we do. I need a quilt too, at least a car seat quilt. Pleeeease : ) Love your work.

    It was for sure a highlight of my shower! I adore every square of it and am hopeful that my daughter will one day pass this gem on down the generations! Love you Sarah 🙂
