Baskets Quilt

A newly decorated bedroom with chocolate walls and candy pink accents could certainly use a new quilt to add a little pizazz, don't you think?
Hm mm...., wonder who I know that would want something like that?
Could it be my favorite, just-turned-four-year-old little girl?

My grandchildren all seem to enjoy getting a new quilt from their Lolly. When I gifted this latest creation to Haven this morning, she gave it a big hug and acted like it was the best present in the whole world! Wouldn't it be great if she became a quilter someday?
I know one grandmother who would be really pleased to pass along such a fun hobby!

Are you passing on your love of quilts and fabric?


  1. That is the cutest quilt I've seen in a long time!! You've already passed quilt love along...I think.

  2. That is an adorable quilt!! And what an adorable little girl too!

    I sure hope I'm passing my love of fabric and quilting on to my daughter...

    Jennifer :)

  3. The quilt is sooo gorgeous, I love the fabrics and those wonky baskets. But the cutest has to be those little legs with little crocs sticking out at the bottom! I also love your blog and have clicked to follow. I found it because Jennifer (comment above) has sent us asterisk blocks for her bee month and I found a great tute right here.

  4. She loves it! Can't wait to get it put up in her room! My girls always love a quilt from Lolly. :o) And hopefully, you can teach them to quilt, seeing as my efforts never end up fully finished! Thanks again!!

  5. it's beautiful! love the colors and your quilting is great too. congrats!

  6. Carla, I love how this turned out. It's the cutest quilt ever, partly because of that sweet little face peeking around the side. She is adorable. Happy birthday, Haven Paris!! I am addicted to making these baskets/pails. It's all I want to do. I need more people who live @ the beach. XO

  7. Soooooooo cute!

    My daughter is home from college for the summer and is very interested in fabric and sewing (not quilting -- yet). It's fun to get her opinion. She has a pretty good eye!

  8. Love those little precious granddaughters. The quilt is darling. She is a lucky girl!!

  9. Awwwwwwww! Adorable quilt for an adorable girl! Love that quilt! I hope Haven had the best birthday ever!
