As soon as I found out Niko's mom was pregnant, I wanted to make this quilt. Her mom Leslie is one of our favorite people in Lawrence (and her dad is great too). I had so much fun pulling together a pile of pink scraps out of my collection. I put them together in my favorite style (improvised) and tied it all together with strips of the very bright fabric I used for the backing. I was so excited, I would get this done on time.
And then it sat. Niko got old enough to stand on the bar at our favorite brewery and smile at her dad Torrey!
I kept NOT getting to the quilting... but a few weeks ago I resolved to finish it. I just quilted it in a grid so it would be nice and sturdy.
Niko is a year old now, maybe old enough to enjoy examining some of the wacky fabrics in her quilt.
Here are a few details - the final quilt measures about 38" square:
|I used lots of fabrics - vintage, contemporary - even fabric printed by my friend Linda Frost.|
|My initials, embroidered.|
