My Aunt is a beautiful sewer and when she emailed me some pics of a baby quilt she made for my cousins new baby girl I just knew I had to share it with you guys!! My Aunt lives far away from me :o( We have often talked about how we wish we lived closer to eachother so we could sew together, I could learn so much from her!!
I just love this quilt. She pieced the top and did the freezer paper applique method. She said she used satin stitch on the applique so the characters would "pop". We are canadian and my cousin and his wife moved to the USA a couple of years ago...I just love how my aunt added the beavers with the canadian flag for them.

A close of up of the cute little duckie :o)
