Last year my sister and I had a fun little trip to California with my mom. My sister, who is not a quilter, was very patient in letting us visit multiple quilt shops during our trip. (Though, Jen you did encourage those last couple!) It was fun to see it all through the eyes of a newbie. She was particularly drawn to Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line – especially the oranges. And so we discussed a cute little quilt for her red-headed (more orangey-red) one year-old. The colors fit her personality perfectly.
(With many thanks to my sweet friend Sherrie Allred for her adorable quilting.)
The other thing I love about this quilt is that it reminds me of the bedroom my sister and I shared when we were little. We had green carpet and the quilts on our beds were orange, green, and yellow. My sister commented on the same thing when she saw the new quilt. A moment of happy nostalgia for times when we used clean our rooms by stuffing things under our beds.
They each contain 36 6.5″ squares of fabric from designers like
Sandi Henderson, Heather Baily, Amy Butler and some Moda prints.
They’re in the etsy shop.
I also have some of the backing yardage available.
Email/convo me if you want some and I’ll create a listing.
Edit update: They’re gone!
Hope you have a little bit of sunshine where you are this weekend.
(We’ve had a nice bit here this week – it’s starting to give me spring fever.)
I’m finally on the ball enough to link over to amylouhou’s sew and tell Friday!
