Meet Amanda

Blame it on Nancy Drew!  I've been seriously distracted by the Nancy Drew blog hop -- and busy making my project and writing my post. (If you're as crazy for vintage Nancy Drew books as I am, make sure you check out the giveaway!) That's why this top sat for a week before I got it quilted and bound.
 
Then I realized that making excuses for not having a finished baby quilt for a third week in a row when I'm trying to motivate others to make baby quilts just wasn't right. So here she is --

 

This is Amanda, and she's made with mostly the same fabrics I used for Annabelle. There are a whole lot of "what was I thinking?" fabrics here, prints that I bought brand new and later decided didn't work with my style of quilting. Thank goodness they make such cute low volume baby quilts!
 

There will be lots more of these.

I love this quilt! I've been sorting through my stash and I can see some quilts like this in my future too

I have lots of 'what was I thinking of' fabrics in my stash. I think you've hidden yours beautifully because I can't see them in this quilt!

I like both of the quilts. I never thought of using lots of prints for that pattern. I have some for a hospital quilt that are all tools and vehicles, so I may try that!
