Smitten With Spring

You know the best kind of sewing? Sewing for a little one... it's just the best! 

I have a new little niece, my brothers wee one. Her name is Spring. 

Meet my brother, and his daughter, Spring. He is such a proud Papa!

Photo snagged off my bro's Facebook page :)
And here is the wee one a bit closer...

Again, snagged from my bro's Facebook page..heh! 


Isn't she adorable?! I think so too!! 

She needed a quilt but I just didn't know what to make her.  You know, when you know you need/want to make a quilt but you just are not sure what you want to make?
Then as soon as I saw it I knew!! It was the one!! 
It's called Smitten and it is designed by my friend Rachel over at P. S. I Quilt. (I love that name....)!  

Here is the label I made for it...


I love the name.. "Smitten With Spring".... :) 

Here is the quilt...



Began quilt on March 28th, completed on March 29th! :) 
Pieced and quilted by me. 
Fabric : Pick A Bunch by Nancy Mims for Robert Kaufman

I {heart} this quilt.. a lot!

It was really easy to put together too! She uses Charm Squares but I just cut my own charms using Pick A Bunch by Nancy Mims for Robert Kaufman. I also only made mine a little smaller to be able to use it as a baby quilt.

If you love this pattern as much as I do, show Rachel some love and go grab it!! While you're at it, grab one of each of the others she has! Just click HERE to take you to her store! You can also get kits for her quilts over at Fat Quarter Shop!! Woo Hoo!

Get your credit cards out..heehee!! 

By the way, Rachel didn't ask me to gloat about her patterns. I just love them that much. :)

Much Love!!!
