Brooke of Silly Mama Quilts made a second little quilt last fall, using fabrics from Quiet Time. This one focuses on Princess & the Pea.

As a child I loved this tale, but not for the princess aspect, but rather for the mental image of all those mattresses stacked up high (patterned mattresses, of course), and in my mind, her bed was in a magical pea garden, lush with greenery, hidden nooks & colourful blossoms. I think that is well captured in this sweet hanging for a little girl’s room.

The back is quite delightful as well, with long strips of colourful patterns, echoing the stacks of mattresses.

Brooke walks us through her creative process today with a tutorial on her blog. Enjoy!
