This one is an old finish, but a new post. I made this baby quilt more than a year ago before we even left Korea.
Somehow (shocking) it got lost for months in the melee of the move. The pattern is from a beautiful tutorial by Bonjour Quilts. The fabric is a mix of Sweetcakes by Riley Blake and assorted solids from my stash.
Those pink prints remind me of Strawberry Shortcake Dolls from my misspent 80’s youth. I can almost smell her fake strawberry-scenetd nylon hair…sigh…good times. Hopefully the gray and the modern pattern offset that sickly sweet girly girl thing.
It’s sparsely quilted echoing the lines on the front of the quilt in pink thread. This was made in the days before I even thought about learning to free-motion quilt. I don’t think FMQ would have added much to this quilt, though. The simple, straight lines make sense to me here.
