Finally: a finish long in the making...

Katie's quilt, finally finished! I bought this fabric (well, some of it), in January, 2009! I started piecing the blocks in May of 2009. That's an obscenely long time in the making, and an awfully long time for a little princess to wait for her mama-made bed quilt...

The front is a whirly-giggle pattern, pieced with a couple of kitty cat prints and coordinating prints and solids, all in light pink, fuchsia, aqua, turquoise, black and white. The background it a pale pink with a subtle darker pink pattern. A single border in some of the coordinating black with fuchsia dot fabric, and bound in turquoise (Kona cotton in lagoon actually).

I completely love the back too, more of the black and fuchsia dot fabric, some fuchsia solid and a pale pink strip featuring a few of the leftover blocks from the front (only the blue and black ones). As often happens, I might like the back even better than the front!
