Simply Color Pow Wow Quilt

I was lucky and thrilled to win a layer cake of Simply Color by V & Co. from Fat Quarter Shop when I entered my hexie pouch during the friendship bracelet blog hop a few weeks ago that was hosted by Diane at from blank pages…  When it came I pretty much cut into it the next day especially since my almost four year old has been asking me for a blankie. That is right I made a baby quilt for my almost four year old. I really wanted to try the Pow Wow quilt by Cluck, Cluck, Sew. So here it is:

I made the baby size not the crib size since I only had 1 1/2 yards of solid hanging around but it is perfect for her to carry around and that is what she wanted.

And here is my happy princess! She loves to sleep with her cozy blankie and carries it down to the couch to watch morning shows just like her baby sister.

Did you notice that I found eggplant minky! You can’t really tell in these pictures but I quilted it with a sherbet like rainbow variegated thread. This is such an awesome fabric line to work with and I still have a couple more projects to come! Yay! So bright and colorful.

Oh, I've eyed this pattern, too! Your version might push me over the edge. I'm also thinking of making a minky-backed quilt for my toddler. Yours looks much-beloved.

The minky looks so warm and cuddly - I have never worked with this fabric, but now I think I just might have to try it! Beautiful quilt, great choice of colours.
