Kara's quilt top



Our great niece Kara (11) has requested a quilt.  I think since she has been seeing her sisters quilts come into the house she decided she would like one too. I crocheted her an afghan when she was a baby but now she needs a big girl quilt. Her favorite color is pink.

This top measures 40" X 50" and is made from a charm pack and the leftover fat quarters from the pink friendship blocks I made the other day. It should be just the right size to snuggle under. Once it is quilted it will be going to Kansas, probably after the new year.



This is what happens when you try to take a picture of a quilt top and it is windy out.

She will be so pleased with this quilt! It has a young and colorful look to it. Seeing it flutter in the breeze just makes it feel even younger! Lucky Kara!

There is something about pink, that just puts a smile on my face. Reminds me of happy & sunny days... Little girls and giggles.
It's a beautiful quilt.
