My very good friend and co-worker, Kiki, is due to have her second baby girl in just a few weeks. Kiki is 100% Greek so we call her the Greek Goddess and naturally, her girls have been dubbed miniature Greek Goddesses.
I wanted to make something a little extra special and when I saw the Candy Hearts Quilt at Moda Bake Shop, I had to try it. I made mine a bit smaller by omitting one row of hearts and left off the ruffle.
I bribed Pi into being my quilt holder.
The hearts are mostly made with scraps that I got from Keyka Lou awhile back. The navy blue strips are also scraps sent to me by my quilter friend back when I bought my sewing machine. The white is Kona cotton in snow and the ric-rac is "giant." I don't know why, but the giant ric rac makes me happy, haha.
The purple binding is also from scraps sent to me by Lesa years ago! See, I'm really attacking that scrap stash.
There was lots of free motion quilting practice. Lots and lots and I still stink at it, but that won't stop me from trying again.
The backing is flannel (thanks for the idea Cami!) that was left over from pajama pants I made for Piper this past winter.
