Patchwork Pips

Patchwork Pips Front

I am probably the last person in blogland to use Aneela Hoey’s Sherbet Pips fabric. I just adore these little girls on swings. They remind me of my daughter on our tree swing in the backyard and that makes me smile.

I decided to showcase that print and pair it with some coordinates from my stash. They include designs by Patty Young, Dena Designs, Liz Scott and Urban Chiks. The turquoise solid is a Moda crossweave and so pretty. I really love the combination of yellow, turquoise, white and pink!

I went for a simple design, just 5 1/2″ patchwork squares. I quilted it 1/4″ on each side of the horizontal and vertical seams. It came out of the dryer nice and poofy, a good quality for a child’s quilt I think!

The main print on the back is a floral from Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line. I was really hoping to use up some of my stash and I think it worked out well with this project.

The final quilt size measures 39″ x 47″. I think this quilt would make a lovely addition to a little girls room. It is listed in the shop!

    No – the last person would be me – I have a Pips charm pack waiting for something to be made, I came to it rather late, but i’ll get there!
    Yours looks great.

    So sweet! You’re not the first person to use the Pips, but you might be the first to use it with these color combinations! It looks great.

    I like how you brightened up the color scheme with your coordinates! And I think you’re not the last – I’ve still got a layer cake, a charm pack, and a jelly roll, as well as some yardage staring at me every time I go in my sewing room!

    Love this quilt – and your blog too! What is the yellow fabric in the lower left corner of the second picture? The one with the white circles, lines and little pink squares?

    Nope, not the last – I haven’t used it (or any other fabrics from a particular range!)

    Lovely quilt – very soft and feminine but bright and cheery.

    I’ve been hoarding some Sherbert Pips myself. Your colors are wonderful – a different play on the fabric line. So great to see that!

    I agree with the other commenters. Your color palette is a refreshing change from all the other pips quilts I’ve seen.

    And you aren’t the last! I have a FQ bundle that I got when it came out at market and I still haven’t cut into it. One of these days!!!
