Meet Priscilla

This is the quilt I'd planned to have finished last week. It's such a great "girly girl" quilt that it needed the perfect name.


So she's Priscilla, named after a gal who was always going out after she finished swing shift at the answering service where we both worked. She'd spend the last hour or so getting ready between calls, touching up her makeup and hair and perfume. (By that time of night, there wasn't much actual work to do.) I hadn't thought of her in years, until I was trying to name this little baby quilt.

I've already made a blue version of this quilt, which came about because I had mistakenly cut some blue triangles and wanted to find a way to use them up. Now I'm working with a green variation. And the tutorial -- on Friday if all goes well!

Your Priscilla quilt is just lovely! What a wonderful quilt for a little girl. We're finding out this weekend if our next grandchild will be a boy or a girl and I'm gearing up to make another quilt--this looks like it would be the perfect pattern!
