Mia's Quilt

I was able to talk Abby into taking a quilt class with me in January and February. We've been having lots of fun together. It's nice to have a sewing buddy again.

We made pinwheel quilts, and mine is going to my friend Amber, who's expecting baby Mia sometime soon.

I chose pink and brown because they are the hip colors right now, and I think that'll be fun for her when she's older, to see what was popular when she was born. I used a sweet flower for the pink, because Amber loves sweet things. I'm shooting for a blend of modern and sweet.
The pattern was pretty fun and simple, and came together nicely.

That is a lovely quilt. I like the two colors together.
What a great activity for you and Abby.

It's beautiful, Bets. Amber will love it, and so will Mia.

Ooooo I want to cuddle up with it:)Quilts make the best blankets to lay them on with their toys when they're really little.
