    Quilt for my great niece

    Here's one of my latest quilts, which I made for my great niece. She's a real "pink girl", three years old and adorable. It's a very simple pattern, so I went ahead and made a mini version for her stuffed toy "Mousie" (no relation to Mousie here on the board!).

    Thanks all! It's such an easy pattern. It took me no time at all to do both quilts. The hardest part was that one of the pink prints was directional, but even that was easy.

    Enjoy!

    That is a very interesting quilt and I love it. Is it all half-square triangles? That would be pretty easy I guess, but your fabric choices really make it.

    Thanks, everyone!

    It is incredibly easy. It's all half square triangles. I used a white on white for the light blocks and chose about ten fabrics for the pinks. I will put together the pattern and put it on my blog for you all to download. You really just need to know the size of the HSTs and the number of rows and columns and what size that will work out to. One thing I did not do was put a border on, and I wish I had. Nothing too large, just enough so there would be no danger of cutting off the points when adding binding.

    I'll put it together for you and let you know when I've posted it.

    Thanks again!

    Lynda

    So beautiful! I, too, would be interested in the pattern. I thank you and everyone on the board for sharing what they have made. Trouble is, I forget to make a list so I know what I'd like to make next.

    Very nice! Love the design, too, and I'm sure Mousie will enjoy his/hers as much as your niece!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
