Little Girl Quilt inspired by my college girl
When Cassie asked me to make her a quilt she wasn't very specific about what she wanted, though she did pick a pile of fabrics she wanted used. I'd come across this post and suggested doing something similar, but with sashing between the colors. She was game so I went to work. After a few hours and a few blocks I showed them to her. And she was far less than enthused.
The quilt hadn't come together all that quickly so I decided to instead make it into a baby quilt and start over for her quilt (coming in a later post ... sometime after I sandwich it, quilt it, and bind it). I added a few more blocks, the white sashing, and the border and put it all together. And Cassie liked it.
Teenagers are fickle.
I love the fabric mix in this. Cassie made some very interesting choices, ones that had me a bit skeptical, but oh how it works. This quilt feels so homey and comforting, just what she was going for.
The quilt is available in my shop.
