Aren't babies cute?

We've been waiting patiently for the birth of our new great-niece and we are happy to announce that she she has arrived!! She is beautiful. And perfect. Her parents are thrilled and both sets of grandparents are pretty happy, too. Of course babies need quilts ... or is it that quilters need to make quilts for babies? And what's not to love about a baby quilt? They'll small and sweet, too.

You know we've had kind of a love affair going on with those pre-printed panels. But they're sometimes hard to incorporate into a quilt.



This is also the baby quilt we mentioned when we were gathering intel about machine quilting. We think it turned out pretty well. We took the "less is more" approach and left it puffy and sproing-y. We hope our little princess will enjoy sleeping under it.

  1. Very cute quilt. I think that the quilting makes the panels look like they're framed - very effective.

  2. What a sweet quilt, and a clever use of panels. I agree with what you write that "less is more" on a quilt meant for cuddling.
