Here's another quilt that I made a few years ago and have been wanting to share with yall. And the Blogger's Quilt Festival is the perfect excuse for pulling it out and taking pics. I made this quilt for my daughter, Cassidy, a few years back.
There is a pattern that I picked up called Cake Mix, by Cozy Quilt Design. I decided I could use up the scraps that I had from making a quilt for my niece in using this pattern. The pinks and purples were perfect for Cassidy.
As you can see, it is a fairly simple quilt, but the effects of placement are wonderful. It calls for 10" squares (layer cake), 2-1/2" strips (jelly roll), and a bit of yardage for the matching squares and inner border. I used up the scraps I had instead and used a bunch of smaller squares for the border.
Isn't it awesome how using just one cohesive fabric makes a scrappy quilt really pop??
At the time, my daughter was really into peace symbols so I quilted it with an all-over design of daisies and peace symbols.
It remains one of my favorite patterns and I've made it up in several different ways. But this one remains a favorite
And best of all, the then 12-year old little girl loved it!!! :)
