The Quilt

Well, I have finally completed Maari's baby quilt. The plan was to have it done before she was born, but oh well. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Little Stitches for Little Ones. Instead of machine quilting it I just used large embroidery stitches, mainly because when I was big and pregnant it was much easier to sit on the couch than hunched over at the sewing machine. The floral fabric was a wonderful old tablecloth given to me by my aunt.

It works wonderfully as a floor quilt, nice and plush. Now, I just need to finish that quilt I started when I was pregnant with Connor - seven years ago! I am almost there.

What an absolutely gorgeous quilt. I made a quilt for my niece about 6 years ago. Now that I'm expecting my first child (a girl due in May) I'm looking forward to the quilt my sister will make me!
