My Grandma embroidered this set of blocks probably around the time I was born! They have been safely tucked away in a drawer for all these years, until she brought them out and issued me a challenge. Make something for my very own baby girl (that we call Hamster) that is due in May. I set to work without a pattern and came up with this!
I used bright fun fabrics as that is what I'm drawn to and it looked so great with the vintage embroidery. My wonderful long arm quilter did this custom for me with lots of swirls.
The quilter echoed each embroidered design and then swirled to fill in the rest of the block and continued it in the sashing.
It is backed with a super soft yellow flannel, perfect for snuggling.
I just know this will get to loved to pieces and I wouldn't have it any other way!
