W.i.P. - Red Riding in Aqua

This is what I'm currently working on.

After finding out that my sister is having a boy I'd put this block aside but then it came to my attention that a friend who's having her little one really soon is having a girl. So I rescued it from the UFO pile, decided to make a cushion cover, and turned it into this little top.

I'm currently quilting it by hand.

Some of you know that I'm not overly fond of pink, so when I remembered this unloved leftover from the pixelated Kirby I thought this was a good project to reduce the amount I still had. Turns out it's perfect! Turns out I love it next to those aqua stripes and lagoon pindots. So much that I wonder whether I'll be able to give it away rather than stash it for when I'm having kids.. haha

I told you that I usually only give away things I really like. It can make giving pretty complicated...

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Ooh so pretty it is going to be lovely

  2. You made a pixellated Kirby?? O.O I have dreamed of making a Kirby quilt since I started quilting! Must get on that as soon as I have money for fabric!

    I just love that little block, too :) I like how it's girly but not super pink. I was never a pink girl ;) can't wait to see it quilted!

  3. Nice use of fussy cutting. That's going to look great!

  4. Adorable!! Beautiful way to repurpose ;)

  5. That is so darn sweet!! Have fun with the hand stitching!

  6. That is so cute!!! Maybe seeing your hand quilting will make me less afraid to tackle mine....

  7. She's adorable! I'm excited to see your hand quilting. :)

  8. Oh such a sweet quilt! The hand quilting is a lovely idea!

    Isn't a revelation when our inner quilter picks things that we might not otherwise like?!

  9. I cannot handle how much I LOVE this little red riding hood block! So glad WiP Wednesday brought me to your blog - I can't wait to look around :)
