Purple, Pink and Gray Quilt

Throughout 2012 I really want to try and work through my stash and scraps.  In my collection were some 1930’s reproduction prints.  Here is the original quilt I made with some of prints.

This one is for sale in my Etsy shop.

Using the same pattern I went through the more girly colors and decided to just focus on the pinks and purples.  I still have a few colors but they will be going into my donation stash.  They are not my style.  I tried white instead of gray, but the gray was just right. I had just enough Kona Gray to finish making the blocks.

The piecing was easy.  Once the blocks were made, the blocks did spend a few days on my design wall.  I wanted balance with the prints.

Couldn’t resist using the new fabric from Riley Blake on the back.  It is light gray with little white flowers.  For the quilting I just wanted something simple.  Criss cross diagonal lines in white finished off the quilt.  The binding is a light pink solid from my stash.

The finished quilt is for sale in my Etsy shop.


My Favorite Gator Turns 2

Can’t believe that two years ago I was running around Central Florida picking up grandmas and going to the hospital to meet this new little person.  I remember the day his mom said she was pregnant…I admit, I cried with excitement.

One of my favorite memories with my favorite gator was when he was just a few weeks old and we went to visit.  He slept on my shoulder all afternoon.  Who doesn’t love a snuggly baby??

just a little guy

Well happy birthday my favorite gator.  Enjoy your new quilt and have lots of snuggles with it. 


 Riley Blake Alphabet Soup and Kona solids were used on the quilt.
