There aren’t very many little girls in the family, so it is exciting for my aunt to have a granddaughter on the way. This is my way to send good wishes for a healthy baby girl.
My mom wanted to give a quilt for the shower, so we got to work. I found this fabric during a random stop to a local quilt shop, Harper’s Fabric and Quilt Co.. The backing came from a quilt shop near my mom, call Prairie Point Quilt & Fabric Shop. It is from the Moda, Basic Grey fabric line, Mon Ami. This is a little funny, since I found out that in french, “Ami” is the masculine version of friend! Oh well.
I loved the grey raindrop fabric, and picked up a charm pack to create the tumblers in the center. My mother and I pieced the top together using our own layout. I like how the tumbler border gave the little quilt a feminine touch.
The quilting is a pattern called “Rain Drops” by Brandon Smythe of Intelligent Quilting. I used blue variegated thread to give the pattern more depth.
It is a simple quilt, but I think will work well as “A Little Sprinkle” of good wishes for my cousin and his wife.
