Between my husband and myself, we have seven siblings. A lot of them are old enough now that they have families of their own, which makes for a lot of nieces and nephews.
Last spring we found out that we would be getting a new niece this fall. Yay, babies! I immediately set out to find the perfect quilt pattern to stitch up for her. I was inspired by this quilt from Jeni over at In Color Order. It reminded me of a simplified version of a bow tie quilt and, since a bow tie quilt is one of my craft goals for this year, I decided to go for it.
I pulled a lot of pinks, corals, and light green from my stash and started cutting. Pretty soon I had this adorable quilt laid out on my table and started sewing. It really is one of my favorite quilts I have ever sewn. I finished it in early July, but couldn’t show it off until mid-August when I gave it to the mama-to-be.
Our newest niece arrived on October 9th. In almost every photo I’ve seen, she is laying on the quilt I made. It makes my heart so happy to see it being loved on!
Psst! This project is one of my 2014 Sewing & Craft goals!
