The quilting was a family affair David and I each did part since it was from us. I made him work for his credit in the gift. Plus, it makes me very happy to have this picture! If you sew you understand what I mean. Here is a better look at the fabrics. I wanted to have baby eye catches so that she would have things to look. The turles are one of my favorites!You are going to love this pattern!
