    Baby quilt for GGD

    Read the board posting every day so maybe it time I posted one of my quilts.
    This is a busy quilt but so is my GGD who will be 1 next week. I design and make my own quilts and this one was great fun because I love the fabric. This is a first try with my right-out-of-the-box John Flynn frame and the quilting is less than my best. I know practice makes perfect but I haven't the patience for that (at 81, I guess I don't have the time for it either. . . way too much stuff to get done.) so I just jump in and go. Learned a lot and next one should be better. (famous last words)
    I used eye-last yarn and a pompom yarn I found because little ones love texture and I always add a butterfly or dragon fly to my quilts.

    I LOVE this!!! Love the fabric with the little animals on it.....can you tell us where you got it? And love what you did with everything, the pompoms are cute, the yarn, the butterfly and everything!!! I'll be 80 in June so maybe there's hope for me yet, to get some done!! GGD is going to love it....had to chuckle about it being a busy quilt but so is she!!

    While I have several years to go to catch you, I so admire and hope that I am able to do that when I get there. That is one very cute quilt. Like the applique. So individual and she will love it.
