Impromptu Girl Quilt

I purchased a new pattern recently, Impromptu by Rachel Griffin. Click here to go to Rachel's store where you can get your own copy of the pattern.

The pattern calls for a layer cake and some yardage for background. I had a layer cake laying around with no assigned purpose and thought this pattern looked like a good use for it. The pattern makes a pretty large quilt, 90.5" by 90.5" finished. I didn't want to make something that large, so I just made fewer blocks.

I sorted the fabrics in the layer cake into three piles: girl fabrics, boy fabrics and gender neutral. This is the "girl" version. It is about 47" by 62" prior to being quilted.

The pattern is well written and easy to follow. A good pattern for a beginner or anyone who'd like to make a good size quilt pretty quickly. It's a great use for a layer cake or any fabric you'd like to highlight by using large pieces rather than cutting it really small.

The "boy" version will get assembled at some point in the near future.
