When Evelyn Bea was just a wee babe, we took a day out to visit Hershey Gardens, to enjoy the sights and take some pictures. It was a hot summer day and the sun was high in the sky by the time we got there, but as a mom-of-a-newborn I was just happy to be out of the house and in a beautiful spot with said newborn sleeping cozily in her sling.
The roses were in their full glory that day and even though I’m not usually a rose kind of person, I do love the colors I captured that day.
Soon Evelyn will graduate to her own big girl bed and I’d love to make her a new quilt using sweet girly prints and rosy hues. A little bit of pale sky blue would ground all that pinkiness and add depth.
And lots of white would keep it light and fresh for a little girl’s room.
This quilt would be so easy to cut and piece. When I piece by machine, I like it to be something I can just sit and chain-piece without thinking too much and this definitely fits the bill. If I want to fiddle with a bunch of little pieces that have to go together in just the right way, I’d rather be in a comfy chair away from the machine, English Paper Piecing. Nice and easy, that’s my machine piecing style!
