Garden Girl Quilt

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAWell, it’s farther into the summer than I wanted it to be for a finished quilt, but I finally got this quilt done.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI’m calling it the garden girl quilt because it’s bursting with whimsical butterflies, pretty flowers, and even a little bee or two.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThere’s a close up of one of the bees, and I think the yellow fabric on the left is one of my favorite fabrics on the quilt.

The pattern credit for this quilt goes to Piper’s Girls. This is their Daisy Baby pattern that is a free download at Craftsy. This is the first quilt I’ve ever made that is set on point, so I had a few mix-ups that required some seam ripping. But, that was my crazy brain not the pattern’s fault. The pattern itself came together quite easily.

And, guess what? This is my first quilt to go up for sale. Yes, it’s official I have an Etsy shop. Well, I have one item listed on Etsy, but I have four more projects actively being sewn to assorted stages of completion and a few more that are at least partially cut and ready to piece. If you want to go check out my Etsy shop, Soft Light and Stories, you’re invited. I’ll be talking a little more about it in upcoming posts.

    • Thanks! Having a built-in quilting pattern to follow was one of the huge benefits of this pattern. It gave my brain a rest after the (sometimes) confusion of piecing the blocks on point.
