Quilt for Amie's princess

 As you may know, in the past two years Amie (Kitty Cats and Airplanes) and I have become regular craft buddies and now friends. As soon as I found out Amie was having a baby, I knew I was going to make a quilt for her, and as soon as she told me she was having a little girl I went to work. I started a classic pinwheel quilt in bright colors back in May but everything was put on hold with the house sale and all the craziness that ensued. 
A couple of weeks ago it dawned on my that I needed to finish the quilt soon since Amie's baby shower was fast approaching. Then I stubbled on an adorable floral in chocolate and aqua. I matched it up with a simple chocolate polka dot fabric and a damask print in aqua to make these fun pinwheel blocks.

A white paisley border completed the design 

And since I had some left over strips from cutting the blocks for the front, I used them up for the back for a fun 9-patch

I used the same cute floral for the biding

I think Amie likes it, and I can't wait to meet her little princess  :)
