quilt for the girl

I've wanted to make a quilt for Audrey for, oh, about a year and a half now. Looking at patterns, collecting and playing with bits of fabric, generally stalling the entire process. (See #12 of the Procrastinator's Creed. Kindred spirit, whoever came up with that one.)

So, I'm pleased to announce (again, mainly for accountability's sake) that I have selected and cut all of the pieces for her quilt. Now that she's officially out of the crib and into the big girl bed(okay, this happened almost a year ago), which is in dire need of some proper covers.

My original plan, way back when, was to make a very simple patchwork quilt of various and random calico squares, tied with red thread/yarn. After much deliberating, that's what I'm back to. Which is good, because it should be fairly quick and easy. Whenever I get around to making it.

I really like the fabric that you've chosen. It's very pretty!

I've been reading your blog since you started, and I just wanted to say keep up the good work! I have you linked through my blog, so hopefully others will come and visit too.

Thanks so much, Kaye! I just checked out your blog - I love to read and will definitely be scanning your archives for some new books to add to the towering stack on my nightstand...

What pretty fabric - I noticed that it will match the doll that you made too!
And at least you have gotten farther than me on my quilt project - you've cut the squares! :)
