Arabella's Baby Quilt is finally finished...I am so happy with the way it turned out. This was done as Quilt-As-You-Go, each block layered and quilted separately then the blocks were all assembled. The blocks were embroidered and quilted in the hoop, with the quilting done through all 3 layers (it took quite a bit of special digitizing to create each block). The center panel was embroidered through top fabric and batting, then back fabric was added. All of the quilting on the center panel was free motion quilted by me. The center panel and corner blocks are a light silver with pink quilting, the other blocks are a tone-on-tone pink fabric with silver quilting. I am thrilled with the outcome. Thanks for looking Cuties!!

You have really been a busy Auntie. This little angel will be the envy of her crowd, if only they knew. Best layette for a baby I've seen to date. Even your 'patch' {I think it is}, is excellent. Kim, you can just make it happen, whatever it is.

Oh my! What an amazing heirloom you have created! Your quilting skills are as fantastic as you ME skills. I hope that they use it, but I'd understand if they kept if "just for show." I still remember my baby quilt. Used it until it had big holes in it and fell apart. I keep thinking that I'll make a quilt just like that one, but maybe I'll just keep it in my memory.

Thanks for all the details on how you created it.
