Baby quilt starring Madrona Road!

Wow- haven't been on blogger in a looooong time and everything is different! We'll see how this goes... There was recently a sweet baby girl born to the family of one of my son's friends. I had the itch to make a quilt and Madrona Road by my sweet friend Violet Craft seemed the obvious and perfect choice! I used the snail playmat pattern from Dare to Be Square Quilting and I love how it turned out!







I love her donkey that stands next to the mailbox with her name on it. So cute! The colors of this line are great. Certainly sweet and girly but a bit sharper and not too sugary.



I pieced the back and put a little embroidery in with her name. I couldn't believe it when I flipped the quilt over after quilting and the quilting lines ended up framing her name so perfectly. I didn't plan that but maybe I should just tell people I did!
And here is the whole back. I love how it turned out and it was so nice to make something after such a long dry spell. Spring is always so busy around here that not a lot of sewing happens.

This quilt is just fabulous---the simplicity of how it's put together makes for a brilliant quilt. :D
