You gettin' fancy gifts from expensive men You're a dog on a leash, like a pig in a pen

This simple  quilt was made for a grandmother of all grandsons who is about to have her first granddaughter.

I love Ian Falconer's  character Olivia.  Like Eloise, Angelica, Lucy,  and even Oscar the Grouch, she is no shrinking violet.

I used some of the Alexander Henry line of Olivia prints. Like the illustrations in the books, the predominant colors are black. red, and white.  Not exactly girly! I added the lollipop fabric to bring a touch of pink and used a pink floral for the backing.
