Baby Quilt

This is my latest baby quilt. I should say OUR latest.  Calista helped me with this one.
It's a "Three Sisters" charm pack (3 of them).  I split them in half and offset them in vertical rows.
I got the idea and the applique from a book called "Some Kind of Wonderful".

Close up of the applique and quilting which I did on my Phaff machine.

The Label.

Calista showing the back.  It's a Robin Pandolph fabric.  We also used that as the borders on the front.

The little recipient, Bella Sue.  Calista is holding her and that's her Mommy, Jessie (the baby's mommy haha) in the background holding the quilt.  It made us feel really good to hear Jessie SQUEEL with delight when she unwrapped the quilt.
