Pink and Orange Party

I recently finished some crib quilts for my two girls.

M's quilt (more orange)
I've been liking her version more for some reason

a little technical info
Each quilt is made from twelve 4" strips with 1" white in between.
Finished quilt measures 41 x 56.5 inches

L's Quilt (more pink)

I won't deny that I motivate L to attach herself to this. You know, because I made it. I say things like, "Don't you want your pink quilt?", "Let's go get your pink quilt" or "Here's your pink quilt". She has a favorite blankie (it made an appearance here and here), but I'm hoping over time mine will become the fave.

I pretty much love how the quilting looks on the back. So clean. And subtle.

By far the easiest quilts I've made. I love this layout.

I'll leave you with Miss cutie patootie.


  1. Such a great quilt design, it really shows the beautiful prints off! I am sure the pink quilt will be a favourite :)

  2. Wonderful quilts - so cheery and bright!

  3. That's hilarious, Les! I would do the same thing...

  4. Such a clean and simple layout and the colors are beautiful! I do that too, suggesting my favorite quilt for their favorite quilt. Ha ha! I just love seeing them snuggle up under something I made with my own hands. These are lovely!

  5. I like the quilts very much! Simple and stunning.

  6. Really pretty--I love basic and easy to make but still oh so lovely to look at.

  7. I kind of like the orange one better two, what a great design! I always see the stipple style quilting and know I'm nowhere that talented, so it's nice to see that stitch in the ditch can do the trick just as nicely!
