Originally, I bought the pattern (you don't need to, but it is a bargain!) to have as a handy reference and bam! Before I knew it, I had "Oh, just one more"-d my way into getting the whole quilt top sewn. It isn't just that the quilt is sooo cute; Lorna did an exceptional job with her instructions, and everything is so logically organized and easy to understand. This quilt top was a pleasure to make from start to finish!

Here are some close up shots so that you can see what the fabrics look like. I was really happy with the Peppered cottons. They are a thick and very soft fabric, with nice visual texture.

I think, when I do finish this, that it is going to be the sweetest quilt for a little one. Thank you Lorna for sharing your adorable pattern with us!
I'm going to be a copycat and use the same backing fabric that inspired Lorna to design her quilt:
