Completed Quilt: Fairy Tale Frames Baby Quilt

DSC_0815

Now that this quilt is safely in its new home, enjoying lots of snuggles with baby A, I can share here with you all!  A very good friend of mine recently had her third baby - a baby girl after having two boys!  Naturally baby girl needed her own quilt, and it needed to be extra girly, as I'm sure baby A's big brothers will do their best to teach her all about Tonka trucks and John Deere Tractors.

Big brothers J and T of course have their own quilts so baby A's quilt now makes three in their household!  You can read about J's Jungle quilt here and T's quilt-in-a-day here.

My friend and her husband have waited until delivery day to find out the gender of all three of their kiddos (more power to them!) so from the minute we got the "It's a girl" message, I knew I wanted to cut into my Far Far Away fabric for this special little lady's quilt.  I fussy cut the block centers, and paired them with soft pinks, purples, oranges and yellows from my stash to finish this delicious baby girl quilt.

I couldn't find a backing fabric that worked with the quilt top from my stash, and really wanted to work from my stash, so I pieced together a back from left over scraps from the quilt top.  It always feels so satisfying to create a quilt from start to finish from stash fabrics!

For the binding I found this pretty pinky-purple print that I believe is a Moda print, and that's about all I can tell you about it!  I know its been sitting in my stash for quite some time and felt great to put it to use!
