My Favorite Quilts

Yes, I do have Favorites.....They are the quilts that I make for my Grandchildren!! I collected browns and pinks for a while before starting this quilt...Do you know how many different pinks there are!! I had to choose just the RIGHT PINKS!! But it was fun searching!

This pattern came from an Art To Heart book called Winsome Baby... The name of the quilt is Pip Squeak Baby Name Quilts.

The hard part was deciding which fabric goes in what block

There is some applique work and the iron on fusible is what I used...Then I machine button hole stitched it to the background.

There is also embroidery work as you can see. I took THIS handwork on our trip to Lake Powell last summer and enjoyed the restful work it provides while relaxing on the houseboat!

Most of the machine quilting was free hand but I did use my computerized on the border and in a few other places. In a few blocks I quilted flower fairies.
Those digitized patterns were created by Anne Bright

This is the back, a soft pink with white polka dots....

You can see the quilted flower faries and other free hand quilting.

On the back I used a pink soft Minkee-like fabric.

I put in alot of Whimsical designs for the quilting! I tell the little Granddaughters to see if they can see the "hidden" flower faries....It is fun to watch them search for the faries.

It is a sweet, cuddly, special quilt for our now, one year old, Sophie!

Yes, she is our little "Pip Squeak"!
