I made this quilt with my Giant Log Cabin tutorial, and it measures 47 inches square. I love the fact that the smallish size made it a super quick finish. And of course, now that it's done, I do like it better, and I think it will be perfect for a baby or little girl.
The weather has been so dreary today, so I had to do this photo shoot in about 5 minutes, which severely limited the creativity in my pics. I'm just glad there was a tiny break in the rain that allowed me to get outside shots at all!
When I was trying to come up with a name for this quilt, my mom mentioned that she thought it looked like neapolitan ice cream with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry all together. So, I have to credit her with the name- Neapolitan Sundae! I didn't notice the stray thread on the label until just now (no kidding- a 5 minute photo session).
For the backing, I had a 1 yard piece of one of the Daisy Cottage fabrics, added some Kona Baby Pink and of course added all of the scraps from the top. I used Kona Chocolate for the binding, and quilted with a meander in soft pink thread.
I don't know if anyone noticed the button on my sidebar (because I haven't mentioned it), but I opened an etsy shop last week. I'm just running out of quilts to gift, and although I do donate some, I just thought, why not? We'll just see how it goes! So far, Grapefruit Fizz is the only quilt in the shop, and she's getting pretty lonely, so this one is going to join her! I think I'm going to try to get a few more quilts in there before the Christmas shopping season really gets in full swing. If you happen to have an etsy shop and have any pearls of wisdom to offer, I'm all ears!
