Whole Lotta Knottin' Goin' On

When I was away at White Oak a couple of weeks ago, my main project was piecing this top.  It is a baby quilt for friends of Andrew and Amy who are expecting -- yup -- a little girl later this winter.  I had a lot of pink and brown CWs left from when I made Neapolitan and have not yet had my fill of pink and brown together.

I looked at the Second Hand Clothes pattern and thought it would be very cute with stars instead of just plain squares.  There are twenty-five six-inch star blocks and sixteen nine patch blocks in the top and I'm liking it as much as I thought I would.  Got me to thinking that when I do make Second Hand Clothes (which is going to have to have a name change as far as I'm concerned), I might intersperse some stars with the plain square blocks.  You know, here and there.

Meanwhile, this quilt is going to be tied.  With brown perle.  And then bound in various double pinks.  And then put aside until Little What's Her Name arrives.  In February, I believe.  Actually, now that I think more about it, this little quilt has a decidedly February look about it.  February Fancy, I believe she'll be called.

I'm loving this quilt. Perfect for a February Fancy. Pink and brown always reminds me of chocolate covered strawberries.

I just have to make a pink and brown quilt. I have seen a few of them, and they really are pretty!
Great job!
