kitchy floral lovey

by Jenny Rinzler
(San Francisco, Ca)

A lovey is a very small quilt (15"x15" in this case) meant to be used as a security blanket. This lovey is made from 3" strips. The design is very simple, which I think makes it look more modern.


I love that pink color because it reminds me of watermelon bubblegum which I haven't chewed for 15 years, but can remember the flavor of so distinctly. After piecing the top, I used cotton batting and minkee (which is a very cozy fabric) as the back. I machine quilted the floral pattern using a straight stitch which is harder than you might think. I used 3" strips for the binding, and finished it by hand.

Love them!
by: Lauren

I've bought three in the last few months. They make such a great gift that feels special yet affordable. Love the cobination of colors, patterns, texture and stitching details.

Very cute.

I like how this quilt isn't "cutesy" but is still so cute. I kind of want an adult sized one. Is that weird?

SO CUTE

I've seen these quilts sold in stores and they fly off the shelves. They are so soft and attractive, well made, and better than any other I've seen.

This looks like something my soon to be born baby would love to cuddle in to! AND, it is such great colors! No pastel pinks and blues. Perfect for a modern, stylish, fun baby!

I have given these to every friend who has had a baby in the past year. All the mom's love that they are soooo soft for baby and yet SO darling and unique in their design. I cannot wait to give another one.
