May Birthday Girls

My granddaughters, Madeline and Ava, were both born in May and celebrate with a shared birthday party. Madeline will turn 7 this week and Ava turned 3.

Turning 3 means her “big girl bed” will be coming soon. When Madeline turned 3 I made her quilt for the new bed.

Now that Ava is 3, her quilt is in the works. She LOVES purple and I’m sure you’ll recall that I’ve been working on Ava’s quilt (my last few posts). The pattern comes from the April 2014 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.

After selecting an assortment of fun purple fabrics and making LOTS of half square triangles, I started working on the blocks, though finding the time to sew when our weather finally has turned warmer is a bit of a challenge.

All the HST’s!

Blocks and . . .

The flowers and garden were calling but I managed to get the blocks finished. Now time to put the blocks together and the pieced border.

Then off to be quilted!

 Happy 3rd Birthday, Ava – your quilt is on the way!
