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!
