Shabby Lavender SUNSPRITE

A call for a lavender baby quilt prompted this SUNSPRITE from the Rachel Ashwell's Garden Rose Collection for Treasures by Shabby Chic.  The pattern is a traditional style that I thought suited the classic roses.  Plus with the colors all so very soft, using a pattern that places the fabrics in a line makes them stronger.  A more random pattern might just mush all together.  At least that is my theory, and I am sticking to it, because I think it works. 

I added two borders to make this quilt more of a crib size.  Got a bit carried away, but I like the look.  The first border is cut 1 1/2".  The second border is cut 7"--I really wanted that stripe to show.

OPENING NIGHT Again and Again

OPENING NIGHT is still our go-to pattern when we have a great theme.  The six fat quarters are usually easy to coordinate, and we're off and running for about $40 and 4 hours of sewing (at most!)

Gallery Fiori from P&B Textiles has been our best seller this year, and this kit was no exception.
And then we have another P&B group, Tribute by Pat Sloan.  It's a great throw size for your Service Quilts.
