Last year for Christmas I made this quilt for my youngest and I don't believe I ever blogged it.
It's a simple toddler bed sized quilt made with Fig Trees California Girl for Moda. I mostly chose that line because it had the colors I was decorating her room with. And I'm fairly certain it was my first quilt made using only one line of fabric.
Sometime during the summer I gathered up a couple of leftover blocks and my scraps to make this mini. I set it aside with vague thoughts to sell it as a mini or a doll quilt. But when Alexis was making her Christmas wish list and full of accessories for her baby, I pulled it back out to use as a gift for her.
And then I remembered this post by Maureen and decided that they must also have matching pillowcases! These came together so quickly and easily and they were a big hit. I thought that they would work well for the baby doll bunkbeds she already owned but she insists that baby sleep in her bed with her each night.
Who am I to argue :) Linking up with Amanda Jean!
