Sweet Little Girl Quilt

Judy sent me this sweet little quilt for her grandaughter to play with. Each quilt block is a tote that will hold doll clothing. Judy did not want the blocks quilted so I just stitched in the ditch around them to help stabilize the block.
She requested sashings, post and borders to be quilted. I think the ribbons and flowers work wonderful with this one. This is what I call very simple custom quilting.

Thanks to all who visit and enjoyed Mary Lou's quilt in the previous post....I'm still working on replying. The comments were overwhelming and I thank you!

Oh this quilt is so cute and I know lots of little girls that would have a lot of fun stuffing dolls and other treasures into the cute little totes on the quilt! You did a great job making it even more girly with your beautiful quilting! :)

I love that you share your longarming photos :)

Hope you have a great week! Love from Texas! ~bonnie

How very sweet! I've never seen a quilt that looks like tote. What a wonderful quilt for a little girl.

Betty Lou said...

What a cute idea for a quilt and keeps those little pieces of clothing in one piece. Nice machine quilting, the quilt and quilting complement each other.

Mary Lou Casada said...

Judy "gets" little girls, doesn't she!!? My "little" girl (20 years old now!) STILL love containers and totes and places to squirrel away her treasures! Beautiful quilting, as usual. I love the simple ribbons in the sashing -- very nice effect!

Hi Quilt Hollow... What a sweet idea for a sweet girls quilt...I know the child who gets this will have fun putting her treasures in the pockets... Love the quilting on it as well... Hugs :)

Pat said...

What a clever idea for a quilt and you quilted it "just right" (sorry if I sound like Goldilocks here). I'm sure the little girl who is getting this will be thrilled with it!

Sue said...

Such an adorable quilt!

Nicky said...

Think I have some of that purple ballet dancer fabric in my stash - so that is what I could have made with it! Lovely idea!

Lorraine said...

How cute! I am enjoying seeing your quilting must be very satisfying for you to turn tops into quilts....the previous quilt was just amazing...I keep coming back just to check it out!

AnnieO said...

Lovely quilting on such a cute quilt. Fun, fun.

...and your previous post, Mary Lou is also a very talented lady--how beautifully your work complements hers!

Wendy said...

So very sweet.

QuiltSue said...

What a clever idea that quilt is. There's a little girl somewhere who's going to love that. The flower motif you used is so pretty, just right for a quilt like this.

Kaaren said...

Isn't that the cutest little girl quilt you ever saw? She's just going to love it with all the pockets to hide those special treasures.

Gorgeous quilting, Mary. It certainly adds that something special.

So adorable!

Gran - Knot-y Embroidery Lady said...

Mary - you have complimented a grandmothers love in making something that is just right for her granddaughter with your simply beautiful quilting! Well DONE!

Gmama Jane said...

Your quilting is true art!! I would love to have my own long arm machine but alas I shall not ever see that happen in my lifetime. I do love this little girl's quilt however and would like to make one for my granddaughter. Do you know if the owner has a pattern I could share?? I think I can get it from looking at th epictures.
Lovely work
Gmama Jane

Your quilting is just perfect on this one Mary. Love the flowers and ribbons. I can just see a little girl stuffing the totes with baby dolls and little girlie goodies.

Darling, darling, DARLING! I love it! :)

Well! If this isn't the most adorable thing!! Your quilting is just right and works well indeed on this sweet quilt. Another job well done, Mary!
