    Here's the baby girl quilt I just finished this evening :D

    I made it for a friend (he's only 17!) who was desperately trying to think of something for his new baby niece, that he has only seen once as he moved to Spain a week after she was born. so this is what I came up with :D

    He hasn't seen it yet completed, hope he likes it :D

    It's absolutely perfect, what a beautiful gift for him to give to his niece.

    I spy some of the fabrics I sent to you in there also - pleased it has come in handy & been used for such a special cause.

    Tisha :lol:

    Tisha, I wondered who would notice, well done, your fabric was too nice to cut up small, so I left those as full blocks and free motioned around the flowers, most of the fabrics were donated, apart from the lemon back ground, I found that in a charity shop in the U.K. !!D :D

    You should get busy writing the instructions and making the pattern available....you're going to be swamped with requests for it. Lovely quilt and beautiful job.
    Put me on the top of the list for the pattern. lol.
    Or if you'd like to practice some more, I'll send you the fabric to make me one.
    How do you come up with such great quilt ideas?

    I just had a very open idea of an 'off set' block with different appliques, which just 'evolved' :D

    I just emailed pictures over to Nathan, who LOVES it, and he got me an order for another one already woo hoo!! :D

    What's not to like? He's gonna love it, and so will the baby girl! He should get a lot of credit for coming up with this gift (as should you!)

    That is so special Izy. I recognized the border fabric. I used that for my DD's quilt. I would love the pattern too, so you better get one worked up. I'll wait till after Christmas. Ha!
