With Melissa's baby girl coming in May, I knew a girly quilt was in my future! I had been pinning away quilts that I liked on Pinterest, but I kept coming back to this one by Holly of Bijou Lovely. I love it! The simplicity of it really shows off the fabulous fabric. As luck would have it, Holly happened to ask for pattern testers for the Colorblock quilt and I was so excited when I got to be one of the lucky testers! I got the pattern on Monday of Charlie's spring break. Tuesday was spent picking out fabric and cutting out the pieces.
Wednesday was dedicated to piecing the top and backing. I quilted AND binded it on Thursday. Before I went to bed that night, the quilt got washed and dried. Wowzas! I love that Benji was home for Charlie's spring break because now I have this wonderful quilt ready to go for my niece, whom is lovingly referred to as Sassypants.
This quilt went so fast! I probably only spent a few hours a day on it. I am by no means a fast cutter/sewer/quilter! I would say that this is a great pattern for beginners. Holly made it so easy to understand and follow. She included great tips, too, to help out new sewers. But I also think that it is a great pattern for experienced quilters because it works really quickly AND it provides great big impact.
Now I can't wait to give it to Little Miss Sassypants herself!
**Even though this was finished up last week, I didn't get a chance to blog about it until this week! Linking up with Amanda Jean over at crazy mom quilts.**
