THE APPLIQUE QUILT

This applique quilt is something I had been working on for more than a  few years ,I made it for my son's boss's little girl ,when I started it she was a baby it took me to long to complete it while she was still a baby so ,I added a boarder
to it in order to make it larger, I started adding flowers and butterflies and that made me take even longer .

So it became larger for a single bed and that took a lot of quilting by hand and some by machine ,at any rate I finally finished and I delivered it to it's home last Sunday .    The little girl happen to be at her grandmas ,but the mother was ecstatic over it she called her mom and described the quilt to her ,and that made me so happy that it is appreciated ,and I am sure the little girl will like it to .

Oh I had to laugh about how your quilt grew along with the baby (now a little girl). It turned out beautiful I'm not surprised that the girl's mum was so exited. It's not every day that your child gets such a wonderful and meaningful gift!
