Sweetie Pie: Classic and Clean

Last week we showed you Michele Crawford's version of Sweetie Pie; today we have a more contemporary take to share, Caitlin Bevevino's pinwheel "Precious in Pink," featured in the August-September issue of Quilt magazine. 

"Precious in Pink" by Caitlin Bevevino,
featured in the August-September issue of Quilt magazine.

What attracted you to the fabric line?
I chose the Sweetie Pie collection because it was something fun and bright for a kid's quilt, without looking juvenile. 

What prompted to use only one color (the pink) in this quilt?
My aesthetic is pretty classic and clean, so using only pink was a natural choice for me. 

Why did you decide to make a pinwheel quilt?
I used pinwheels for the same reason; I love classic blocks and pinwheels have always been one of my favorites.  And, I think the mix of the bright fun fabric with the classic pattern gave it a nice contrast, and the pink really pops against the white. 

How did you decide on a border treatment?
The borders are pretty plain, but I think they accent the quilt nicely; they frame the quilt well without taking away from the pinwheels.  I usually lean toward plain borders when I want to really showcase the quilt blocks. 

Tell us about the coordinating pillows.
For the pillows, I added large rick rack and ball fringe because I've always loved those trims - especially rick rack!
