My Granddaughter's Quilt

The quilt is finished except for the label.  My daughter and her husband need to figure out the name for this baby due in May so I can embroider a label and sew it on.


 I went around all the ABC's and the pictures that go with them and just did swirls in the blocks between.



The fun was with the border - did a quilting pattern from Angela Walters' book (love the way it looks) - but the border fabric is just so darn cute!!!  Love the moose with marshmallows, raccoon with radishes, elephant eating, alligator with apples!!!




So nice to have this basically finished months ahead of schedule.  I'll be sending it to my daughter's MIL so she can take it to the baby shower for me!

So cute! I love it! I haven't seen this fabric anywhere down here. Can you tell me who the designer/manufacturer,etc. is so I can look for it. I like the Moose with the marshmallows too. I like the quilting on the border too. I've been going to try that soon, it looks great!

Adorable. The border fabric reminds me of Jan Brett's drawings. This will be a very loved and cherished quilt.
