I finished up my Sherbet Pips quilt in time to give it to my niece for her baptism. I didn't buy any of the Sherbet Pips line when it first was released, and now it's getting a little hard to find. I just wanted some of the pinks, and I was able to find them (on sale!) here. I wanted the quilt to be simple and sweet, so I came up with this basic design using three half-yards of the prints and some solids.
I used the rest of the half-yards on the back, plus some squares from a charm pack. I just might like the back better than the front.
Aneela Hoey helpfully listed some matching Bella solids on her blog. I framed the prints with Bella 30s Pink, and then used the Bella Gray for sashing.
I used some more of the Bella Gray on the back, along with some bigger pieces of the prints and some patchwork.
After seeing Adrianne's Pips quilt, I knew the scarf print was the only choice for binding. Done and gifted!
