My cousin Massoumeh had her second baby, a gorgeous little girl named Hazel, in the last days of 2013. I had not yet started Hazel’s quilt, but I had some ideas percolating. Since Ruby, her older sister, has a quilt made out of Aneela Hoey’s Little Apples line, I was fixated on using Sherbet Pips. I also somehow settled on the Round and Round quilt pattern from Thimble Blossoms. I used my Sherbet Pips Apple Core quilt to audition background fabrics and I took a leap of faith and went with Alexander Henry Heath in black.
After making a million half square triangles…
…I put together my first block and realized just how much I love this quilt!
I can’t wait to see it when she finishes!
It’s wrong to steal a quilt from a baby, right?
