Harpers quilt!

l don't know about you, but l love babies!!  l'm not a granny yet, and sure
 hope to be one day, but in the mean time,
 l enjoy playing with any great niece l can get my hands on. 
So what better excuse to make a quilt for my current little one, Harper.

l started with this yummy pile of fabric.

Which quickly became this on the design wall.

l played with them till l was happy and put the rows together.

Then added a final border.

And started to recut.

Ending up with this on the wall.

Once l had it quilted and bound, l took it out in the garden for some shots.

Sometimes it played nicely,

And other times the flowers wanted to be the star!!

l like this one hanging on the bird feeder,
though the sun has washed the color a little.

And it played very nicely with the old gum tree!!

But it started to look lonely!
So we called up Harper to "come see"

And she said, 'This is for me? '

'l love it!!'

'Is it really mine?
 ''Thank you Aunty Linda'

'Can we go home with my new quilt now Mum? '

Thanks for visiting.

  26. Fantastic! Just love this!
