Lovey for sweet June

C's little friend June (daughter of my dear friend Jenny) turned one last month. I finally finished her quilt (which was meant to be a gift for Jenny's baby shower!) I have to say in spite of the many, MANY issues (corners not meeting up properly, the scrappy nature of the piecing, etc) I really loved this quilt. It was a hard one to give away but I can think of no little girl I'd rather gift it to.  I hand quilted this while I watched the first two seasons of Downton Abbey and this will not be the last time I do it! It lends such a charm to a quilt and was much easier than I thought it would be.

These colors just make me so happy! Almost all of the fabrics are Denise Schmidt prints.

I hand stitched the binding on to match.

It's a smallish quilt, somewhere between a baby size and a doll size. I'm calling it a carseat quilt...just the right size for snuggling while on a long drive.

Happy Birthday Ba'june!
