This quilt started as a really cute panel.
A really cute panel that was sooooo very narrow,
and not a good size for a baby quilt.
And I had NONE of the coordinating fabrics
that came in the panel fabric line.
What to do??
I decided to make side panels
to help bring it closer to square
than the narrow, banner-like start.
To do this, I made individual 'flower' Lil Twister blocks
(with white cutting backgrounds), hand-appliqued circles to the flowers' centers,
I finished it with a darker pink border
that's a little wider than the green border in the original panel.
And though the color saturation isn't good in the following picture,
it does show my free-hand quilting lines:
the morning after she was born, and did the binding that night.
Now I just need to get to see her (and cuddle some, too)!
I usually gift and then share the pictures,
but decided to share first this time.
Do you share pictures of quilt-y gifts
BEFORE you gift??
I'm off to do some more stitching -
Thanks for stopping by and
