Quilt for a Baby Girl

Usually when of my adult children needs a quilt for a wedding or new baby gift, they come and look at what I've got finished or in flimsy stage, and pay me whatever they would  normally spend for the wedding or baby gift.

It's been a good system.

But this time, my daughter's boss was expecting his first child and she wanted something special. I'm so sorry that you can't see the fabrics up close and personal. They are cats and bears and other animals. And ten or twelve of the brick blocks are embroidered. I did the embroidery while I was traveling in England and then assembled the quilt upon our return. 

Once we found out the baby is a girl, I chose pink polkadot fabric for the back and the border. 

I'm happy with how it turned out and I'll try to get a better picture before my daughter takes it away!

How charming and what a loving gift - good system with your kids, too! I look forward to seeing the new photo as even enlarging the current picture doesn't show your embroidery at all.

A Merry Christmas to you and your dear family!

Hugs!

You are so good to provide these quilts. I think of you as one of my two baby quilt idea sources.
I am interested to see the stitched blocks "up close and personal".
