    Very nice Vicki! I love the label - that's always a hard part for me, sometimes I just write on the back of the quilt....

    Well, its getting to where the label is taking a good amount of time too. Sometimes at the beginning of articles, they have this little sketch of the angel. so I enlarged her on the copier and traced over that onto the fabric with a fine point marker, then stitched around it with black thread. The pattern was in an old issue of American Patchwork and Quilting and the angel came out of Quilt Magazine.

    That is so pretty, it looks like it was made with a machine. It never ceases to amaze me what people can do with their own hands and minds; and we are all unique,no two alike. That is one lucky child

    Thanks to everyone for the nice words about the baby quilt. I really aprreciate all the kind things everyone said. I have been hung up on flowers and learning how to make them and couldn't resist this pattern.
    And the angel for the label was just the icing so to speak!
