Today my friend Natalie came over so we could start a quilt for her 2 year old daughter. I love making girly things since I have two boys and no girls. She wanted to make the quilt in a sagey green, pinks and browns. A few months ago we went fabric shoppingand chose some and she's been hunting and gathering every since. This is her first quilt.

We chose this pattern called Butterflies from the book Celebrated Craziness by the Buggy Barn. I thought Buggy Barn would be a good place to start since there are no points to match up and perfection is not required!

These are the blocks we worked on today. The orangish-red is really a dark pink. I love the fabric she chose. I can't wait to see the whole quilt when it's done!

Great pattern. I did a buggy barn pattern once and absolutely no perfect seams required! The colors are very pretty too.

What a cute pattern! The colors and fabrics are going to be great for a little girl!

I owe you so big time! Thanks for being patient with me and for not saying I quit when I sewed that one piece in the wrong spot 3 times!! :) I can't wait to see it all together either!

I love that!! Is it just pieced?? I thought it was applique. Awesome!!

Oh and yes, of course I remember you! I am excited to follow your blog. I don't get much sewing time now, so it will be fun to at least look at some quilts. :)
