Baby Feathers

A friend of ours is having a baby ... what better reason to make a quilt!  They had a couple of ultrasounds and after asking them a few times to make sure I was assured that it's a girl.  Ok ...

I saw this gorgeous red/orange/pink/yellow batik and fell in love with it right away.  PERFECT for a girl.  I put it together with a pink patterned background and designed this quilt.  I love love love quilting feathers ... both in applique and quilting ... so I incorporated it into the entire quilt.  The dragonflies add a little bit of fun and extra color to it.  It's all done by hand, with multicolored variegated thread used in the quilting.

It was a big hit at the shower, everyone loved it.  All I can say is, it better be a girl!
