I finally met my new niece last weekend, and surprised my sister with a new quilt for her new baby girl. Isla is gorgeous - so sweet and cuddly.
My sister loved the quilt too, and I even managed to psycically match it to her new curtains too.... and there I was worried that she wouldn't like the green..... things are just meant to be... She was secretly hoping that I would have made a new quilt for her.
It has a lovely flannel backing, so soft and snuggly, and I quilted it fairly open so that it is nice and soft. I used a gorgeous variegated thread by Superior threads called "Seashell" and it looks really lovely on the white fabric.
And as I didn't make it up to Lincolnshire last weekend (a little lady called Lucey got in the way !!) I even got to show it at show and tell at quilt group on Thursday evening too....
