pink pom poms

I posted a photo of the kids snuggled under their quilts watching a little Sesame Street and was reminded that I had never shown this little quilt (er, blanket). It’s a current favorite, and even though I made it with Hazel in mind, I’ve probably gotten more use out of it so far (mostly because I’m not as tempted to eat the pom poms as she is!).

This Nani Iro woodblock pocho is my current favorite. It comes in a few colors, but a couple of those colors (this one and the black I think) are an even looser weave, and consequently even softer than the usual double gauze. I bought mine at Nido – having felt it in person, I just couldn’t leave the store without it.

Once upon a time I saw a photo of a quilt with pom poms on pinterest, and the image had sort of stuck in my head, so I decided to try it out with this fabric. I paired it some hot pink pom poms and a pink shot cotton. It does have batting in the center, but while I planned on hand quilting it, I decided I liked it as it was, so I suppose technically it’s not a quilt – three layers, yes, but no quilting… so no go? Either way, it’s super soft and fun with those pink pom poms. And once Hazel stops trying to eat them all, I’ll give it back to her…maybe…
