Sweet Aubree

Aubree is due to be born around May 10, 2013. Exciting time in her family's life! She will round out a family of four, with a big brother. Her big brother's birthday is also in May and is looking forward to his special birthday present "Aubree". I know she will be a "Cherish Child", and I am ready for her delivery. Her folks are kind and generous people. This is my first quilt finish in 2013, and I made "Sweet Aubree" for her from picking out fabric, sewing, quilting, binding to hand stitching her name on the side.

I sewed (16) 10 1/2" Squares in rows of four and then sewed the rows together. Very simple but also very pretty depending on the fabrics chosen. It is an excellent way to display fabrics you love! On the back three rectangles sewn together. This is a perfect beginners quilt! Great baby quilt!

Quilt Stats: 40" X 40"
Top Fabric: Aunt Grace FQ Bundle about 3 years old From LQS
Backing Fabric: Morningstar by Linda Hohag,
Brandywine Design, P & B Textiles
Hand Stitching: DMC Cotton Perle, 8, Blanc

My inspiration for this quilt was these lovely 30's Playtime fabrics sent from Patricia @ A Yankee In Queen Liz's Court from the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop as a winning along with some Aurifil thread. I love to use Aurifil too, not just give it away! Thank you Patricia for a lovely giveaway and being such an inspiration.

Updated 4/18/2013 - I was really excited today when I realized I made "Sweet Aubree" all out of my stash! I do try to use my stash since I signed up for Year Of The STASH 2013 but I have had some slip ups. I have to admit I am a Fabricaholic! Are you?Whatever shall we do?
