    Kathleen's little girl quilt

    Kathleen is 3 and I wanted to make something girly. I had taken an embroidery class and this is what came out!! The embroidery is a Jack Dempsey Needle Art pattern called "9" Nursery Quilt Squares. Instead of redwork, I did "pink" work, but two shades of pink with a little green thrown in for the leaves. My first all machine quilting, SID. If you saw my other post,NOTICE THE SCALLOPS!!!! lol

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    What a darling quilt! Such cute embroidery designs. I like the scalloped edge and the back. Nice finishing touches. Oh, and a cute label too. Terrific job on all!

    It's very pretty! Love the pink/green combination and you got the scallops just right! I received that ruler for Mother's Day from DD#2 but haven't finished anything to use it on yet.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    You have put a lot of time and effort into this quilt and it certainly shows. I'm sure your lovely work will be treasured for many years to come.
