Silly Sasha


This is my new cousin Sasha. Isn’t she great? She is about 3 months old in this picture and the quilt was about 2 days finished. :/ I know, I am a slacker. But in my defense I didn’t actually know she existed until a couple days after she was born. So I need to make something QUICK. I was hoping my aunt and uncle would come and visit while my parents were in town but figured if then didn’t, everyone is only a mailbox away.

I rummaged through my stash and came up with this crazy cute baby girl fabric and panels. It is wonderfully silly with skinny babies in big diapers decorated with an array of baby paraphernalia. Since our family tends toward the goofy side of life, I figured it was fair to assume that this little bundle of cuteness would one day join our ranks. Therefore, the quilt is named ‘Silly Girl’.

 As I said, I started with some panels and then added fabric from a jelly roll of the same fabric line. I have had it for so long, I am not sure who the like is by. :/ I then found this great border fabric also in my stash, I thought it gave the quilt a bit of retro-funkiness. To add to that sort of psychedelic vibe, I quilted it with various daisies in a pink and yellow variegated thread. I hope she gets many years of cuddling with it and dragging it around.

The quilt I started making for Little P to celebrate his birth finally got finished 9 months after he was born ...beat that ! (Guess that proves Im one slack grandma.)

I didn't make a quilt for my two girls till they were 5 yrs old each, and it took me 2 1/2 yrs to make each one. I think it's safe to say you're not as big a slacker as you thought! :)
