For my new niece, Daphne

I just put this little baby quilt in the mail to my new niece in Portland, Daphne. I usually don't put the wild print on the front of the quilt, but this one felt right this way and with a plain green on the back. I tried something new, which isn't obvious in this picture, but used the floral as my quilting pattern. I started in the middle square and free-arm quilted around some of the flower shapes. It looks really cute on the back but it was kind of stressful so I went back to a straight stitch for the outside border.

Your quilts are amazing. I am not surprised, but I haven't seen any of your work for so long. That looks like so much fun! I love fabric. Next time I am in NYC, I want to go to a fabric store called Purl Soho (purlsoho.com). Let's go!
