Of course you do!!
Well, when my little next door neighbour was approaching her first birthday I decided I would make her a quilt. As she is now coming up to her second birthday, I really have to get a wiggle on! I was inspired by the colours her mum had chosen for her room - so muted and lovely and I wished I could have my room decorated like this! I borrowed a little doll she had and went on the hunt for coordinating fabrics.
I have the most beautiful bundle of fabric! I really just wanted to keep it for myself. I can picture a lovely scrappy blanket for my study (which is my little feminine corner of the house). But I was determined not to be selfish and to persevere and give this away. But I cannot come up with another pattern. All I can picture is traditional patchwork. Lots of little squares. I'd love it! But it's not the right fit for this family. It needs to be a lot cleaner for this family. Does anyone have any ideas???
If not, that's fine, because I think I am abandoning this quilt as being for Mia and just accepting that it belongs with me. I think I have to make Mia something else. i may already have an idea brewing for her.
You see, I picked up these cute little charm packs at Spotlight a few weeks ago. They're so bright and lively and to me they are screaming little girl happiness.
I am wanting to combine two standard square charm packs to give the quilt size, but I thought I might add in some random blocks made out of hexagons and triangles (because I may or may not have bought packs of those too.)

Ooh! Ooh! Does this count towards Think Tank Thursday????? I hope so!! :-)
