** If you’re Malia, STOP reading! **
My cousin Malia’s baby shower is in Raleigh this weekend! I’m very bummed that I’m going to miss it:( But I wanted some of my quilty goodness to be there!!
Malia is doing a pink and grey nursery. She lives in a cool old farmhouse in New Hampshire and has great mod taste! I decided on pink, grey and white fabrics! I also decided to use my Designer Star pattern and just reduce the size. Instead of 9″ squares, I used 4 1/2″. (Sidenote: If you decide you want to do this, the background pieces are 3/8″ smaller than all the other squares.)
I took some quilting lessons from my quilty friend Kelly! I tested out some of my new skills!! I still need more practice, but I’m quite proud of the shell quilting in the star!!
I used the scraps of the pink fabrics for the binding! I ran out of thread (shocker!) and had to switch to light grey for the curls in the outside section:)
I found the PERFECT backing at Linderella’s! I bought all they had which was sadly only enough to back this quilt.
All rolled up and mailed to Raleigh!
And here is the whole quilt!
Congratulations Malia & Jon! I’m so excited for y’all!!
