A Quilt for My Girl
As soon as I finished the quilt for my new nephew my daughter wanted one of her own. I was happy to oblige. I bought some Dress Up Days by Riley Blake and decided to do squares to highlight the cute little girls. I fussy cut the girls and did every other square either print or white outline with the opposite in the middle.
This was the 3rd quilt I made and it was before I bought a walking foot. I had some trouble with tucks and puckers but once I washed it and it got all crinkly you don't really notice the imperfections. Well, at least my daughter doesn't and that's the one who matters in this case:).
I also made shams to match making sure at least one girl was in center of each pillow.
I finished this a while ago but my daughter decided to use it right away before I could get any pictures. Yesterday I had some time so I grabbed a few quick photos of it up on her bed.
The back is a solid piece of the floral pattern from Dress Up Days and the binding is also from the line. I do like it when all the fabrics coordinate so nicely.
I love that the little girls are so cheerful and carefree.
