From The Archives



This is one of my earlier quilts, maybe about the fifth one I made.  I made it about ten years ago, for my daughter's twin-size bed, back when she as in her pink phase. The pink phase lasted roughly from age 2 to age 9.  I was willing to go along with the pink, and she had pink walls and a pink rug with white furniture. But I thought a bed quilt would be a good way to tone down the pink, lest you feel you had jumped into a bottle of Pepto-Bismol on entering her bedroom. 



This quilt was good way to do that - scrappy, with the pink balanced by other pastels, and a pink floral border. It got a lot of love and has been washed quite a few times. Now that Miss Main Street has a full-size bed in her blue bedroom, this old quilt gets used as a throw or extra quilt when a friend sleeps over.

That's a lovely quilt. My 6yo niece is pink all the way too. I'm trying to finish a quilt for her that I've made - I put a fair bit of white in the front too, but have made the back all pink so she can flip it if she wants.
