I made a baby quilt for a girl at work. I think it turned out sweet. I just wished a had enough ric rac to go all the way around(I LOVE ric rac!!). Anyways, It looks nice just being used on the top and bottom. The squares are made from charm packs(Simplicity by Moda).
Although I have a long way to go on achieving perfection with maching quilting, I was pretty proud of my job on this one. I was just going to stipple but thought I would be more creative :o)
Cute little Label. I just used steam a seam and hand blanket stiched around.


I was washing my daughter bedding yesterday and after hanging this quilt on the line I thought I would take a pic to show you. This is one of my earlier quilts that I made about 4-5 years ago. She has outgrown sunbonnet sue and uses it as an "extra" for the winter months. Hopefully summer will officially be here soon so we can lose a layer of blankets on our beds!


The blocks were pre-stamped blocks that I cross-stitched and embroidered.

I love the ric rac! I might go back and rip out the border I sewed on mine and add some too. That is so cute. Your little lable is just precious too. Jenn
