PB Inspired Quilt for Little Miss…

I saw a similar quilt like this one at Pottery Barn a couple of years ago but it wasn’t exactly what I wanted.  I really wanted to make my own, but wasn’t getting any inspiration.  Then I walked into Material Girls and saw Barbara Jones’ Bubble Gum Basics by Henry Glass fabrics and FELL IN LOVE!!  I bought a bunch of coordinating fabrics and some matching jumbo rick rack, and went home and designed a quilt for my Little Miss.

My mom helped me sew this up and then she machine quilted the whole thing for me!!  She did  a different pattern on every strip block including a cute paper doll pattern of girls holding hands—love it!!!  She did an amazing job that will be treasured forever!

And I had enough fabric leftover to make a decorative pillow case and pillow with our family mantra—laugh out loud!!

And since I still had leftover fabric, waste not want not, I made a valance for her window…

Go ahead and say it, this one really is SEW SWEET!!!
