The first reason to love this quilt (#1) is because it's a crib quilt, and there's something inherently great about a crib quilt. Especially a crib quilt that was intended to be a crib quilt, and not cut down from a larger quilt that was worn. Also, this crib quilt has lots of pinks (#2) yet lots of blues (#3) and a smattering of reds (#4) and it could be for a boy or girl (#5).
It's a typewriter key print. Which makes it not just adorable but gives it educational value. (#7) Once you're done swooning over it, you can simply gaze at it and see how many words you can spell with it. Box, son, ox, an, ban - well, you see the possibilities with just this snippet.
If the typewriter key fabric wasn't enough cuteness, here's the floral fabric that's used for the sashing. (#8) In my fantasy fabric shop, we'll have this in every color.
It's a basic nine-patch quilt (reason #9 to love it, which is fitting, and really, is there anything more authentic and good than the nine-patch quilt block?), which in this quilt is a combination of print and shirting (#10 for a good combination, #11 for any quilt that uses shirting.) Reasons #12 through #24 are for each of the 12 nine-patch blocks, some of which are about to appear.
It's a hundred pieces, and all of a piece. (#37) I even (sort of) love the idea that it will go to a new home (#38) because it will be on Etsy (just click on the sidebar) as soon as I finish here. Someone new will love it (#39), and they will find reasons all their own.
