My mini quilt contribution is called Quiltilicious!! It is a fun basic geometric design that has a lot of movement and an almost 3-D effect. I love how it turned out and had oh so much fun putting it together ;) it is just so fun to play with tiny half square triangles and 1 inch rectangles. Such great happy quilting times and it is so fun to finally be able to share it!!
For this hop, I thought it would be fun to share a fun little story about some of the inspiration behind the quilt. The first day I was ready to start pulling fabrics for colors I was totally overwhelmed. Of course, I could have done this quilt in any number of color combinations so I began making several piles of color combos trying to decide which way I wanted to go. In comes my sweet 5 year old daughter.
Kami asked me what I was doing making my sewing room so messy and I told her I was trying to pick colors for a new quilt. She insisted, (in her most matter of fact tone) that a perfect quilt would be made of Pink, Purple, Silver, and Gold because those are the favorite colors of Pinkalicious. And of course, Pinkalicious is her favorite and so those are her favorite colors as well. That would soon followed with how incredibly happy it would make her I used her favorite colors in this quilt. It was so adorable, I couldn't resist (although I did draw the line on adding gold ;) . And when it came time to name the quilt, Quiltilicious just seemed to fit ;)
