{LOVE} baby girl quilt

After what seems like ages, this baby girl quilt is finally finished! Its about as simple as can be with four big blocks making up the front. I purchased some Amy Butler {LOVE} fat quarters a few months ago and figured they'd turn into a nice little stroller sized quilt. Man its nice to get this off my to-do list! I feel accomplished to get this done while tending to a 2 month old little guy. I basically worked on it in 10 minute chunks! hahaha

I went for the good ol' pebble quilting, even though it takes up a ton of thread! I just love how it looks, and makes any quilt a tad more modern. The fabrics were so bright and cheery I chose a pale celery green thread for the front and an apple green to blend into the back. I don't like quilting thread to stand out too much so this did the trick.

Again, to keep it simple, a whole piece for the back, also from the LOVE collection. The binding is a combination of the backing and green Sun Spots fabric, my favorite!

Measures 32" by 40"
Yup, I'm still obsessed with Amy Butler prints... although I haven't gotten my hands on this entire collection yet. YET!

So simple, yet so pretty! Love the colors and I'm a huge fan of pebble quilting now. It's so nice and puffy and so easy to do, I love the look (and feel).
