Another quilt from my past.

About the same time I was making the flowery quilt in 2010 I also needed to make a baby quilt.  Lucky me I found some terrific fabric and the same pattern worked for it too.
Be My Valentine
This quilt turned out so great it was hard to give up.  But give it up I did, because that's what quilters do.  We make beautiful things and give them away so someone else can enjoy them too.

This baby quilt was made for my son-in-laws sisters baby.  If you need to take a moment to figure it out I'll wait.  Anyhow, they had decided not to find out the baby's sex before the birth so I needed a quilt that would work for either sex. 
The Back
This was such a fun quilt to make.  Mostly because the fabrics were so much fun to work with.  There were just enough scraps left over of the focus fabric to make a doll quilt.  And as luck would have it they had a beautiful baby girl, Izzy.

And just as a reminder of the flower quilt.  Here's a picture of it too.

The fabrics made such a difference with this pattern.  Simple but great, if I say so myself.

Hope you enjoy your Labor Day weekend.  I know I plan to.  I was up bright and early this morning.  Okay it was still very dark outside at 4:00 but I was up.  My sewing room is finally back together again after our sew day last Saturday and I'm ready to get at it.

Happy sewing,
