Fresh Vanilla in pink: A birthday quilt
Here is the quilt I made for my younger daughter's birthday, which is tomorrow. SO bright and cheery!
Here's the back:
If you visit my flickr photostream, then you have most likely already seen this, as I showed this at our AAQG meeting last week. I created a green and white quilt using this same pattern; I got the pattern, which is called Fresh Vanilla, from the Summer 2009 Quilts and More magazine. I LOVE this pattern. I did free motion quilting on this in a stipple design with white thread. It really came out nice.
Interestingly enough, my daughter made me this for Mother's Day:
Now, as you can see, it matches her quilt!
Yes, she did know about the quilt ahead of time. She was the one who chose the fabrics ("Mommy, you can get these fabric bolts for me, and put them in your Etsy shop!"), and she chose the pattern, too; she even helped me cut it out and piece a few blocks of it. She's becoming an incredible quilter/sewist; I will have to show you one of her sewn creations soon.
So, don't tell her, but I am going to give it right back to her tomorrow. Maybe we'll use it as a wall hanging over her bed. After all, she also made me this for Mother's Day:
So, I'm good. :)
