    My only niece is expecting her first (gender unknown) and LOVED Beatrix Potter stories as a child. So I found these machine embroidery designs and made a quilt that will be almost coverlet size for a twin bed. Nancine Pike of Purcelville VA did the LA quilting (notice the mice pattern on the border. There are 20 different embroideries and 20windmill blocks.

    early one of entire quilt was of the back - here is the whole front
