Now that Lia has a big girl bed, she needs a big girl quilt to cover it:)

I had started to look for fabrics even before we started the plan to move her to a bigger bed and just didn’t fall in love with anything – until I found this one!! Garden Party Tango by Melissa Ybarra is just a pretty collection of both colors and patterns. I think it will make a great quilt for her room and a nice base to decorate around.

I found a pattern on Pinterest that I really liked and seemed simple enough (me and elaborate quilts don’t mix yet – I need simple straight lines with little cutting to build my confidence). And here’s where I am so far!

The pattern is for a 36in x 36in blanket so of course that won’t work for her bed so I’m doubling the pattern and will still probably have to do a border to get to the right size. I have the groups of strips sewn together and now need to iron them and cut, then stitch again. I only get 20/30 min here and there so things are going slowly. Maybe by the time she’s 16 I’ll have it finished!
