It was made for a child living in a children's home in Mexico City, which I learned about on Alison's blog Little Island Quilting - you can read more about her "Soy Amado/a ("I am loved") project here. This explains the embroidered message bottom right, which was done in variegated thread using a tight wide zig-zag on my sewing machine.
I thought about making something unisex, but then I decided that I would go all-out girly for someone who should have one of her own. I didn't think I was a "pink" person but I must have been in denial as somehow a fair amount of it seemed to have crept into my stash. I used all of it in this quilt, it was quite liberating!
The quilting is simple - straight lines a quarter inch from the seams in the squares, and stars in the white sashing.
Thank you for visiting!
