Family Baby Quilt

Easter morning


Some time ago, I was asked to make a blanket and crib skirt for my newest grand baby, Emriella Abigail. (Em-ree-L-a)

Eldest Son, Don and family

I finished the blanket/quilt and I'm working on the three layer ruffled crib skirt.  My DIL, Shirley, picked out the fabrics -  she likes bright colors.  Their family picture on Easter is at the right.


Here is the result of the quilt!

Quilter friend, Ritha and I 


Everything is designed around the bright print 

Backing is soft flannel

Free motion quilted and trimmed with satin blanket binding

Free motion quilting continues the print design

Of course, a little tag "Made with love by Grandma"

Isn't she just the cutest little thing! I bet she'll love looking at all of the bright colors as she gets a little older. :-)

Emriella is a little doll! Love the quilt fabric -- so cute with all the animals, and the embroidered flowers add a fun touch!
