Sew and Tell Friday

Baboo Quilt
the front
the back

The Baboo Quilt has entered the building, and brought a couple of fabulous pillows along. Ain't they purty? Feminine, funky, vibrant and colorful. I love the log cabin pillows. I see many more of those in my future. This quilt is large enough to use as a coverlet on my daughters double bed or to wrap herself up in whilst reading Jane Ayre or Little Women. Oh, who am I kidding, whilst on the computer or watching The Hills on TV. In any case, it will cozy up her room nicely, making it warm and comfy and maybe even a little groovy!

    Oh yes, both the quilt and pillows are pretty! I love the big and bold dots on the backing and pillows.

  2. Awesome! My 14yo daughter would love that quilt! She has a special fondness for zebra stripes, so the binding is most definitely groovy. lol As is the whole quilt! Great job! :o)

  3. I love these simple quilts almost as much as log cabin blocks. Nice pillows too!
