Floral Patchwork Baby Quilt

All the squares were cut from vintage pillowcases. I'm still afraid of doing a binding so I just enveloped this. It's a summer quilt so in place of batting I used a layer of flannel. I love, love, love this quilt & am feeling quite sad that I'm selling it rather than keeping it. It would go perfectly with my girls' room & would be such a nice 'on the go' blanket, since it's not real bulky.

Well I'm only against the 'keep its' because I want to buy it!!!! I'm sure you do deserve it. Anyone that picks fabrics and makes something like that. But I'd still want it.

Now you are making me want to make a summer quilt with flannel inside - great idea! And I love it - I would have a hard time selling it too.

You have been busy girl! I love that quilt so much. That will be something that your girls would love even when they are older. I love the memories that I have of quilts! I think you should keep it too!!!

you guys are killing me.

the whole point of making this quilt was to make money off it. i do have enough materials to make another...maybe even a couple more. there is a lot of fabric in a pillowcase!

glad you all like it, though. i'm pretty fond of it myself. :)

Jessica said...

well then, you should make another one and keep it and then make one for your etsy shop! it would go in a flash! :o)

I love it! Make some money honey and then make one for you. Or keep that one and make another to sale!

chanel said...
