My entry for the Amy's Blogger Quilt Festival.
I made this quilt to celebrate GD#3 arrival. She is a miracle baby for DD#2 and SIL.
The quilt is based loosely on the Yellow Brick Road pattern. I say loosely because I found YBR difficult so I sort of did my own thing .... I think it turned out great.
DD#2 is a not a quilter or sewist but she definitely has the color/pattern eye. So off we went to 4 quilt shops in her area and Joann's too. She wanted lots of pattern with a touch of black and hot pink. Oh we found so many wonderful fabrics.
I used chenille from Joann's .... oh my gosh that stuff is so soft and cuddly ... it was perfect.
As you can see I used a heart, teacup and teapot theme for the quilting. That was DD#2 theme for her baby shower and the room is decorated with touches of teacups and teapots.
