The pink quilt




When I saw this quilt (scroll down to the October 21, 2007 post) Manda made for her daughter over at Tree Fall Design, it reminded me of the quilt my mom made for me when I was little. Mine was made with lighter pink fabrics and lots of frills, but the over the top girlyness was just the same. With Christmas around the corner, I decided to make one for Asha. I pretty much copied everything Amanda did, except I didn't have quite the variety of liberty fabrics (at $35/yard, it is a little hard). My mom helped me piece the top when she was here for Quinn's birth. She also paid for the long-arm quilting as a Christmas gift to me. I finished the binding with little time to spare before Christmas.
Asha loves the quilt. She has thanked me many, many times. I see the same twinkle in her eyes as I had in mine thirty years ago when I was wrapped in pink.
