I just realized I never posted about this baby quilt I made. I am taking an English class and a History of the United States class this semester and I am doing so much writing in those classes that unfortunately blogging hasn't been high on my priority list. Today I found out about the Bloggers Quilt Festival that Amy's Creative Side is hosting so I thought I would enter this little quilt. My mom asked me to make a quilt for her close friend Lena's daughter who had a very premature little girl. Little Ella was 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. I actually babysat for Lena's children a long time ago when I was a teenager. My mother asked her prayer group ladies to come over and they all prayed over the quilt before my mom sent it off. I am happy to say that Stephanie loved it. I got the sweetest thank you from her that just made me cry.
One of the fabrics I bought had a flower pattern large enough that I was able to use them for appliques in the center of each block. Each block is the same I just rotated them in each row.
