    absolutely adorable! I haven't done any of the emb. applique, are they much trouble? Your quilt makes it look worth it anyway. I may have to try some now?

    It's a lot easier that the machine applique. I've been using my embroidery machine to do these kind of appliques. I don't get perfect stitch when I try it on my sewing machine.

    I just call it that, basically just start making things now for a future grand baby. Basically like a regular hope chest only for the baby. Start putting in a few blankets, afghans, outfits etc.
    I love this quilt, its adorable.

    So, what do you think?
    What a darling little quilt. I'm sure your friend's baby is going to love it. I like the embroidery but also like the nice bright, happy colors you have chosen. Great job. Thanks for sharing.

    Cindy,
    It's the machine embroidery applique designs. These designs are from emblibrary.com. Yes, I cheated. I didn't do the applique the normal way. For the life of me, I could get the satin stitch to look right.

    Adorable. I think the little critters compliment the fabic. They have a retro look to them.
