Emily's baby quilt

My niece, Emily, will be having a baby in January and we recently had a lovely shower for her.  What with modern technology, we texted pictures back and forth of fabric ideas and wallpaper and paint in the baby's room and we got a perfect match LOL.  Here is the focus fabric we picked out and some solids to frame the blocks.  The fabric was "reduce, reuse, recycle", but I fussy cut the squares so that this theme wasn't put into the baby quilt :-).

This was like making a puzzle...very fun.  The large blocks are 12" finished and the rest are multiples of that.

The quilting was organic line quilting with a variegated King Tut thread
