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!
