I’m usually not drawn to girly fabrics…but I JUMPED at the chance to sew with these when I saw them at Quilt Market.
  The line is Flirt by Dear Stella and the colors are perfect.
I love that these fabrics work equally well for a baby or a teenager.  So you can make a baby quilt that they won’t outgrow it in a year!
With that stack up there I made a baby quilt using my Playful pattern.  The different pinks work so well together.


I quilted it with diagonal straight lines, and machine bound it using this method.  After a quick wash and dry it’s ready to deliver to a new baby girl!
Flirt is in stores now.  These photos don’t do this fabric justice!

    I'm not usually drawn to pink but these fabrics are lovely. I need to make my 12 year old daughter a new quilt. I'm at the looking at fabrics stage and I think those pinks might be contenders.
    Lovely quilt.

    Im not a pink person either but I love a pinkish red; it's a little sweet and a little sassy! The colors are gorgeous and that pattern is perfect for it. Love it!

    This is a great design with the pinwheels and bricks. I can imagine it would show off a lot of different collections. Great job!

    Such a pretty quilt! I don't see a lot of gray with pink but I think it looks just so beautiful.

    Your pink playful pattern quilt is adorable. I love that fabric collection. With all boys in my house I usually stay away from pink too, but this is one I must consider!

    The fabrics are adorable especially because they do not scream baby, but are just feminine and pretty. The quilt pattern is perfect to display these sweet fabrics. Awesome job!

    Lovely, definitely a fresh new look for pink and your pattern really pops the colors in a fun way. Thanks for adding a new fabric to my want list. :)

    the pinks looks great together, very nice design, like the way the pin wheels go diagonally down the quilt

    I'll have to see if my local quilt shop will get this line in. They usually do get in Dear Stella. Your pattern is perfect with it.

    Love the fabric it's romantic but yet modern! I'm sure it's recipient will love it!

  20. Roxanna July 26, 2014 at 11:27 am #

    I saw "Flirty" the other day. I had kind of the same thought – I'm not really into girly, romantic fabrics anymore. However, I really liked this fabric line. I've probably just talked myself into buying some:)

  21. Pat July 26, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    This is so pretty. Makes me want to shut off the computer and go make one right now. Ooops! I don't have any Flirt. :-)

  22. Alicia Key July 26, 2014 at 11:35 am #

    Hi, Allison! Love the pattern. As the owner of one of the "local" quilt shops in the country, I'd ask that your last line be "Look for these fabrics at your LOCAL QUILT SHOP -OR- order from … (the 2 you listed). We All carry your patterns whether we have that particular fabric or not. Keep up the good work!

  23. Carie July 26, 2014 at 12:24 pm #

    Oh they are gorgeous pinks – crushed strawberry and raspberry not super sugary pink – definitely irresistible!

  27. SeaBreeze Quilts July 27, 2014 at 11:37 am #

  38. steyla witt November 15, 2014 at 7:52 pm #

    I bought the fabric and the pattern , I was just wondering if I should wash the fabric before starting to piece or not! Anybody ?

    • Karen February 4, 2022 at 8:37 am #

      Steyla, I only learned to sew a few years ago at a local shop. I kept hearing the owner say, “there’s nothing like a first washed quilt.” well, not understanding if–I made a quilt for my granddaughter-and did not wash it–it looked flat, but being ignorant, I didn’t understand. So, a few years later, when she had her first child, I made a baby quilt. Not wanting the baby to be against unwashed fabric, I washed it before giving it away. THEN I SAW what she had meant!!! The first washing brings the quilt to life!! I so regretted not washing my granddaughter’s quilt at that point. But to answer your question in a round about way. I DO NOT wash fabric before sewing. For one thing, it’s a major pain to have to wash, dry, IRON, cut raw ravvely edges……so I sew it without washing, then enjoy that first washing of my new quilt once it’s finished. Happy sewing, karen

    • Allison October 15, 2016 at 3:37 pm #
