    I'm new to quilting - and self taught through reading books and watching tutorials online. I have never done applique before but really wanted to try this little crib sized quilt for my new grand daughter. I was so excited with working on it but wanted to keep it a secret until it was done. Boy that was tough for me because with each step I did I fell in love with it even more. My dear hubby, bless his heart, listened to a lot of my oohs and ahhs as well as "what do you think?" questions. Each step was exciting to me and I really learned a lot along the way. I hand quilted everything except along the outer edges of each box containing the sheep and flowers - I cheated and machine quilted them. My son and daughter-in-law were so excited to receive the Sleepy Time Lambs quilt for little Miss Julia (now 8 weeks old). I'm anxious to do more applique work now that I've accomplished this one.

    That is one beautiful, cuddly quilt. Great job both on the applique and the quilting. Your fabric choices and color is pretty nice too! She is going to love it to pieces for a very long time.
