This girly quilt is for a baby who was born in September. She is the first grandchild of very good friends. I had a quilt planned for a boy but then, Dana actually gave birth to a girl. When I learned that the baby’s room is in pink and grey colors, it was perfect. My Tula Pink fabrics had just arrived. I adore her artwork and never tire of finding the hidden animals in her work. This line of fabric is called “Slow and Steady”, which is spot on since I started this just after the baby was named. Luckily for us, we are invited for Shabbat dinner tonight and the baby and her parents will be at Grandma’s house. I needed a push to get this quilt done and it worked! Here is Avigail’s quilt, one that was promised a long, long time ago. I was hoping she wouldn’t start walking before this got to her, and luckily I’m just in time. My photos don’t do these gorgeous colors justice, but you get the idea. Tula PInk fabric is just too beautiful to duplicate on camera.
The butterflies were paper pieced and they were so fun, I could have made many more. The pattern can be found on Craftsy and is by Tartankiwi, who is so talented. I will definitely be making these again for a future project.
