    I have some light yellow fabric with small pink and blue flowers on it that will be sashing and borders the back will be yellow flannel. As I said they're are 15 fairies the 16th block will have the baby's birth date, weight, lenght, and time of birth. The first block was the daisy one it has her name Lalaith on it

    Those are sure nice! So pretty and I love the fairies.

    I know next to nothing about machine embroidery, so I couldn't begin to suggest anything, but they still look good and the baby and parents will love it!

    That is so sweet of you to take the time to create this beautiful quilt. I think all of your blocks look great! I love each of them. I am like Celeste, I know next to nothing about machine embroidery so sorry I am of no help. Buttercreamcakeartist,(Miranda), machine embroiders all of the time, maybe she has a suggestion that will help.

    Those are gorgeous ceannastahr! I wish I had an embroidery machine. I have no idea where I'd put one LOL, but I wouldn't mind being able to make these really sweet blocks ya'll do on your machines! Sooo pretty. :)

    They are perfectly beautiful! I can see the face.....maybe you've been working to hard?

    I was thinking as I looked at the pictures that little baby will love having this to use for HER baby girl when she has one.

    You are so sweet!!!
