I searched for a pattern that I could use, and found some wonderful inspiration, including these mugs from Lori Holt's Row Along Quilt, Kate Spain's In From the Cold quilt, available as a free pdf from Moda and these delightful cups made by Susannah Kate. I also really like the pattern "All That and the Hatter" in Sarah Fielke's book, Hand Quilted with Love. None of them was quite right, though, so I took inspiration from all of them and made my own.
Thought you might enjoy a little tutorial, too. Click on the picture to go straight there or keep reading and it follows this post.
I think it looks pretty cute with the 16-patch block! This is going to be such a sweet quilt for a little girl!
It's a stretch, but I am counting this as a finish and am linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts!
