Love

Thank you for all the baby well-wishes…we are adjusting well and even managing to sleep well at night…imagine that!
Luckily I finished up this quilt just before she was born.
I backed it with a minkee fabric I bought locally.  It has a really nice weight to it and is super soft (by Shannon Fabrics).  I quilted it with minimal straight lines here and there to keep it from being too stiff.

The quilt matches her perfectly…I can’t get enough of all the pink!

    what a sweet little quilt for such a sweet little baby girl. Look at all that hair! Reminds me of my second when she was born. Congrats!

    She's beautiful! All that hair! Such a pretty quilt too. I know what you mean about the pink.
    Go figure, I had three daughters and pink wasn't an option, then I just had four granddaughters and I am absolutely loving how soft and yummy all this pink looks! Congratulations! Trudy

    I am so happy for you! Your boys will treat her like a queen and she will bring such sass and joy into your lives.

    Glad you are getting some sleep!

    I admit it – though I've always peeked at your website daily, lately I find myself coming back more and more often just to take another look at that sweet little baby. (sigh) I remember those days so fondly. Enjoy her!

    Here is a different way to do the half square triangles with no marking, much faster.
    Cut your squares and place them right sides together. Sew a 1/4 inch seam all the way around the outside edge in a square then cut from corner to corner then cut the half in two using your ruler to make sure it is even. Try this, I think you will like the method.
