Forgotten Finish

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.

IMG_0736Those 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.

IMG_0741IMG_0737It’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.
