A Sherbert Pips Quilt


Marian's birthday was back in November.


This pretty quilt was finished only a few months later.


I took two charm packs of Aneela Hoey's "Sherbert Pips" line and did a little "disappearing nine-patch" pattern.


Then I added some Kona Ash sashing and a border of Sarah Jane's hopscotch print.


So quick and easy!


And then I sent it off to my quilter for a little "meander" goodness.  (Don't you just love that girl on the swing?)


The backing got a little interesting as I tried to use up every charm and not purchase new fabric, all at once!


Marian might be the littlest person in my home, but she's my biggest quilt lover.  This quilt is no exception.


In other news, I celebrated a birthday earlier this week.  I don't really like cake - unless it's made out strips of binding and sitting atop a pretty, little dresden plate! Such a charming little gift, wouldn't you say?


(Linking up to Finish it up Friday.)

  1. Of course I love your quilt :) I have some charm packs of Sherbert Pips. I intended to use them to make myself a birthday present, maybe next year. Happy belated birthday to you. That is a great kind of cake!

  2. I just finished a sherbet pips quilt too!! Your quilt is beautiful. I am a little disappointed with mine. I used a higher lift batting and ended up with some serious puckers on the back. Hopefully it will disappear some after it's washed. Happy Birthday!!
