pretty patchwork for hazel


You might remember when I pulled together these lovely Liberty prints, a few fun texty prints and some corresponding cotton couture solids. I love the delicate florals paired with the pink solids and that one mossy green solid.


I made it with Hazel in mind, thinking these colors would go well in her new room (it’s on my list to get some photos of her room, though each time I think of it it’s never as clean as I’d like!). I didn’t get it done before she was born, but about a month ago I did find some time to add some simple quilting, a little pink binding, and give it a quick trip through the wash so she could start getting some use out of it.


And she has, and I, of course, have thoroughly enjoyed seeing her spend time on a handmade quilt! It may not be my finest finish, but it is finished, and sometimes that’s all you need.

    I think it is your best quilt yet because it is Hazel’s. That in itself makes it extra special. 🙂

    What a beautiful baby. Um…the quilt is gorgeous, too, but what grandma can resist that face…and all that dark hair…and those bright eyes? Sorry. lol How can you expect an honest drooling over a great quilt when you put such a pretty baby on top of it? I love the colors you chose…ooooo, and look at those cute feet!!! (I’m done now.)

    The perfect picture! A beautiful baby girl on a beautiful quilt. What more could we ask for except more of the same! And some with Max, of course. Nothing makes a quilt look better than a baby or a big brother….8-)

    Beautiful as always! I’m sure it’ll be a favorite. This combo inspired me to make a simple patchwork baby quilt combining mustard/yellows with pinks. Hazel is just adorable!

    Please don’t be hard on yourself about this quilt Ashley. It looks beautiful, I love the combination of pinks and neutrals. And what a feat to achieve finishing a quilt with a new bub. Hazel is gorgeous and looks very happy, so you’re doing great on all fronts! Cheers, Kelly
