princess and the pea baby quilt

inspired by this quilt back
(sorry this image is blurry)
I finally got this quilt off to my brand new niece (i gave you a sneak peak here), so I can now show it in all it's glory. I like the quilt itself, but I just love the color combination which was inspired by a quilt seen here.

  1. Nettie, this is absolutely stunning. I agree, the colour combination is so fresh and inspiring. I would never have thought to put those colours together but they work just perfectly. What a lucky little niece you have!

  3. That's the third princess and the pea quilt I've seen in as many days. Now IIIII want to get some fabric and make one too.

    Too bad I don't know any little girls!

  22. Great color combination! Love that princess and the pea fabric - even if I'm not the princess type. Actually, as I typed that, I realized that I have a cool print of a painting of the princess and the pea on my quilting room wall done by a Danish artist!
