Girly Quilts in the Making

Recently, my sister-in-law asked me if I would make a quilt for a special little girl in her life. Of course I will, as long as there is no deadline for completing it. She was fine with that and said it could be for Christmas or a birthday or for any special day. To get started, I sent her a picture of the fabric collection Brighten Up by Me and My Sister for Moda Fabrics. I also sent a Moda Bake Shop pattern, Simply Style Stacked Squares. She immediately said YES!

I was a little nervous it was going to be too busy but I think it turned out great. The top is made. The quilt is layered.

This is the backing fabric. I love the colors. I love the butterflies. Perfect for a special little girl. I was about to get started on the quilting... until I got distracted by all the scraps left from this project. The pattern calls for two jelly rolls and a layer cake. All of the parts are needed, but there are so many leftovers.

Red Pepper Quilts posted one of her awesome quilts right before I created this scrap pile. I wanted to give it a try. And I did. The only fabric that had to be added was the white fabric.

This turned out just as I had imagined. So cute. This one is going to be finished up for a special little girl in my life. But first, I must finish the original quilt.

Believe it or not, there are enough scraps for a third quilt from this fabric. The third quilt will be made for a foster child. Looking forward to sharing three finished quilts soon.
