A "Tickled Pink" Blog Hop Starts Today - My Day Too

I have so many reasons to feel "Tickled Pink" this month, including this amazing blog hop hosted by the always incredible Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks! Thanks for this pink challenge!


Last October I learned there was a new Monkey Baby coming and it was a girl. Shocking! With six brothers, this sweetie will be so spoiled and protected! Since I was in Utah at Garden of Quilts, I managed to find time to shop for PINK fabric. Found some!


I went with an easy pattern because it took me until January to sew it. and
Monkey Baby was due in February (yikes!)



A little minky on the back so the little princess will be comfy.


She arrived on February 9th and I can't seem to stop staring at her.
Once I learned the new Monkey Baby's name, a new quilt was created!


Of course it had lots of DOTS, a ruffle and minky on the back!



Check out all the other Tickled Pinks!

Oh my goodness, Dottie is just so sweet, and lucky to have a Grandma who not only made her 1 quilt, but whipped up a second one just for her as well. Minky is such a great backing and lil Ms Dotty will love it. I think I may have been with you when you bought that fabric in Utah. LOL!!!!!!

What a wonderful Dottie quilt. So perfect. If you are going to stay on this track and make her 1 quilt a week you are going to be a very busy gal. Love that you have backed both of these quilts with minkie, so cuddly.

This is the best 'tickled pink' story I've heard. Isn't that just the best to have a girl after all the boys (not that you don't love them). Both quilts are lovely, but Dottie's quilt is the best with the dots and the ruffle. Congrats!
