Serenity's Quilt

I have a friend who has had six children. Although they were not trying for a girl, her first five children were all boys. They had decided after their fourth child that he would be their last. Then they had two more surprises and the last was their girl.

She is the first granddaughter for this family and everyone is excited. Of course since I have made baby quilts for all of her brother, I just had to make one for her.

Colors requested were: pink and purple. So, I pulled  pink and purple scraps and trimmed and squared them up. Do you not just love a little pile of trimmings?

After all of the trimming, squaring, and rearranging, I wound up with this.
I think it is kind of cute even though I think it is slightly boring, but I think I can pep it up with some awesome quilting and a super princess backing fabric.

2016 Flimsy and Quilting

2016 quilt top is finished!

It is so much better than I thought it would be! I love the numbers and the colors! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quilt!

I have started to quilt this and am using the wavy quilting. I am going to quilt around the numbers in black so that it echoes the numbers. So, I made the wavy quilting go up to the numbers. I will bury the knots later.

This is the wavy quilting on the top of the quilt. It won't be long until it is finished.

Did I say that I LOVE this quilt? ;)

Tammy's Quilt Finish

And have another finished quilt.
I know that she is going to love it.

It is so nice to have a finished quilt.
I did a straight quilt line on each strip and then put at least one wavy quilt line on each strip. The back fabric was the inspiration fabric and pulled it all together. Since she is a lover of the English language, this backing fabric has words all over it.
