Girls Plaid & Floral Quilt

It's been a while since I had time to just sit down and quilt. Summer has had us traveling to see family which has been nice. When I came home and got settled, I was looking for a quick project to accomplish. As I was looking through my fabric stash, I found some fabric that I had purchased months ago at a local quilt shop. I fell in love with the sweet patterns, the color combinations and the antique feel. The fabric was already pieced together, so I knew that would cut my time in half.













I rummaged a bit further through my fabric stash and was able to find enough coordinating fabric to put together a girl's baby or toddler size quilt in just a couple days.

Here is the front. The full size shots look a little kittywampus due to how I had to hang it for photographing. I cut the pre-pieced fabric and then added a solid tan cotton as a border to create a 38" x 44" quilt.





















For the back, I used two different coordinating patterned fabrics and incorporated a stripe using the fabrics from the pre-pieced fabric.























Below is a close-up of the back.


And here is a close-up of the front. I just love the prairie-style window pane stitching.












I am smitten over how sweet this quilt turned out.
