quilt virgin


i am no longer a quilt virgin!
my first quilt is finally complete and was a gift for
my newest niece on the way: isabelle.




this quilt was made with so much love.
it was hard and long to make so i was emotional when sheila opened it up and started to cry.






the fabric was picked especially for sheila and her 
fabulous taste, and i just made up the pattern.
i loved how it turned out and i love that it is for sheila's 
second baby girl (5th child).



i love you sheila and can't wait to meet isabelle!

What a beautiful quilt. Congrats on a job well done! Did you do the actual quilting by hand or with a machine?

Okay at first I read this title as "guilt virgin". I wondered, how can you be a Mormon Mommy if you don't live on guilt? Ha Ha! That is such a beautiful quilt. I'm sure with all of the wonderful thoughts and acts of love you put into that blanket that baby Isabelle is bound to be a happy sleeper. Right?! Great job!
