As much as I tried to avoid getting on the Sherbet Pips bandwagon...cute meets funky/ was too much to resist. So here is my first Aneela Hoey creation, The Pips.

It is my version of Amandajean's, aka Crazy Mom Quilts,, A Sweet Baby Crib. You can find it online at the Moda Bakeshop.

The back is pieced together with my favorite prints from the Sherbet Pips collection and leftover blocks. The binding is done on the bias with a super technique I found on The Bitter Purl, You can find it there posted on April 13, 2011.

This was an easy and very fun quilt to make. I think I might make it again with a different line. My four year old is going to be so excited when I give it to her, and I get a giddy feeling whenever I look at it. Woo hoo!

Happiness is a hug

Heads up this is light on quilting and heavy on cuteness (in my opinion).

Happiness is a nice cup of coffee on a mug rug...

...and happiness is a hug

So have a happy day today with hugs...and maybe some coffee, too.
