Little Pinkie is done!

Now we're just waiting on baby Lindsey, due to arrive any day now.


I can't take any credit for the combination of fabric & pattern: it was a kit!! (Except for the backing, which was waiting patiently in my stash for the next little girl quilt.)


Bought from my favorite quilt shop in Minnesota near my mom's: Gruber's. But actually bought at the Chicago Festival where I was very excited to find Gruber's had a booth!


The pattern is called "Grandmother's Inspiration". And if you were wondering about the scale when I showed you Mariko's quilt last week, here Little Pinkie is hanging in the same spot.


The quilt is 45 by 35.

I would have actually probably finished the blind stitching in one day if I hadn't been at Lollapalooza all weekend.


Now on to the next....

I heart Lil' Pinkie! The stripey binding kills me.

A very lucky baby to receive such a beauty. The backing is fabulously cute!

Love the quilt! Especially the backing fabric. Where did you find that?

You finished before she was born, awesome!

I love that you can see the shadow of the backing flowers on the front when you hang it in front of the window! That quilt is sweeeet.

I love it! Adorable. And that backing fabric is so fun!

So, how was Lollapalooza?

Outstanding! I love it all. Especially the striped binding. Nice work!

What size are the squares? And how about the sashing width?

And: I know Grubers! I used to live in St. Cloud.

oh, it's just so pretty!!!

Congrats on another finished quilt!

It looks so little compared to the Strippers quilt. Cute!

So, what's next?

Posted by: Melanie at August 7, 2007 04:21 PM

Pretty. Packing yet?
