I made this quilt for my closest cousin Ashley. It was meant to be a wedding gift, but they had a baby in the first year before I finished it. (I was going by old etiquette that gives you a year to give a gift). So I did pictures of their sweet Oliver and the quilt got pushed aside again. But this year I was victorious and finished this quilt! I am in love with these fabrics! It was actually very difficult to part with. I tried some new freehand quilting too, that is where the real beauty lies. The pics don't ever show it nearly as well as I like, but when it's all scouchie and up close it's wonderful. Ashley's reactions was so pleasant. I've even been sent a video and picture of it displayed and being used in her living room. So rewarding. I love to sew for my loved ones.
