I've been meaning to post about this finish - since July!
(Guess I was a little distracted - whoops!)

My little girl turned 8 this summer and that's a big one for us!
In honor of her baptism I made her this quilt.

I used fat quarters she had collected over the last few years.  I use to let her pick one every time we went to a quilt shop together (but then I had to cut her off because her stash was getting bigger than mine!  :)

This pattern was fun to make and easy to follow.  I love the pattern and was thrilled when my girl picked it out as I was paying for a different purchase!  She has good taste - don't you think?!?

I had to go with turquoise minky on the back-side since it's her favorite color!  The yellow birdie-striped binding is from Noteworthy by Sweetwater for Moda.  I thought it was the perfect fabric to finish the whole thing off!

It's a great snuggle quilt, giving her room to grow up 
(since it measures 75" x 75").

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
