My friend Sara is a wonderful quilter. I am always amazed at the gorgeous things she makes. But she does not like to do free-motion quilting. So guess who she asked to do some stipple quilting on her new baby quilt? Being as this is really bigger than a regular baby quilt, it took me all of Tuesday morning to quilt it. But I think it came out great. And I love those cute blocks, so happy-happy-happy!
After working on Sara's quilt, I had a hankering to make a baby quilt of my own. Never mind that all 4 babies born in our family so far this year were boys, and I have already made them all quilts of their own. I was in the mood for a baby quilt, and it had to be a GIRL quilt! I am a little bit tired of all these Boy quilts. So last night I pulled out some Swanky turnovers and got to work. What fun! I love the bright pastels. If it was up to me to name this fabric group, I would have called it Sassy! Some of the fabrics are so deliciously citrus-y. It makes my mouth pucker up just to look at them. There is some lemon in there, also some tangerine and lime. I think it's going to need a little white border around it, just to calm it down. This thing is so bubbly, it must be carbonated!
