I have been lucky enough to have some pretty wonderful customers over the years. I enjoy working with people to get just what they want (even if they don't know what that is).
Last year I was asked it I could make a quilt for a little girl using one of my designs (I still haven't made it in to a pattern). This was the finished quilt and happily received.
That little girl has a sister and it was time she got her very own quilt too! We started by finding just the right fabric. Eventually we arrived at this beautiful bundle from the Fat Quarter Shop.

Once I figured out what size the blocks would be it was time to become a piecing machine!!
There are five different blocks needed for this quilt. There was plenty of 'pretties' to pick from with the fat quarter bundle. I was well on my way to getting all the blocks pieced and ready for the top assembly.
First was getting the blocks and colors evenly distributed from top to bottom. Figuring out the correct size of the white pieces was a little bit of a challenge. Once I got the math part out of the way it was smooth sailing!
I ended up changing the pattern just a little bit. Adding a random square print helped bring it all together.
Finished top! Like the first quilt, I used Kona White for the background. It highlights the sweet prints so well!

For the quilting I went with 2" diagonal lines. Very similar to the first quilt!
The back is Kona Honeysuckle with a pieced strip of prints.
And of course little sister had to have a coordinating bookmark just like her big sister! And that my friends is the 'cherry on top'!!
