A Quilt for My Niece

As I posted earlier, we have a new niece!  She seems to be adjusting well so far and I'm sure they are all anxious to get back home and get settled.

It has been really fun to follow along with them through my sister's emails and blog posts.  She seems like such a special girl and I can't wait to meet her.  Unfortunately that won't be until August when we head out to Oregon to visit family.

Until then, I'm working on a quilt for her.  It's my way of connecting.  The anticipation of her seeing this quilt for the first time just makes me smile as I work on it.

Here's a little preview.  I'm nearly done with the quilt top and will start soon on the back and quilting it all together.  I used all fabrics that I had in my stash, which was challenging yet very satisfying.  I designed it on paper myself and I'll explain the significance of it all later (although those of you who follow her blog can probably guess it).

  1. I love the applique. I still haven't taken the time to learn how to do that yet. Another one of those things on the to do list. :)
