I made this for my niece last spring. Pink is NOT one of my favourite colours, but it is her mother's and older sister's fave ... I had to go out and buy a bunch of fat quarters to get the scrappy look I was going for.

The large pink hearts are hand appliqued in the center in the same neato pink flannel print that is on the back of the quilt. There are double hearts and quarter flower wreaths hand-quilted in the border and in the pink sections of the log cabin blocks (the quarter flower wreaths were a waste of time because you really can't see the detail with all the prints and flannel backing). Everything else is cross hatch.

Here is a shot of Sammy's label. I used fabric pens and clip art found on Microsoft's web page:

I have to say I think baby quilts are my favourite quilts to make ... they're fairly small, so you can see your results much quicker. And the moms seem so greatful to receive them ... I had to threaten my SIL to let Sammy actually USE this quilt, and not put it up on the wall.   Smiley

wow!  I love this.  I'm not a huge fan of pink, but your quilt is changing my mind!  Great job on the choice of quilting design too.

Aww, this is great!  Nice interpretation of a traditional block!

And, you're niece's name is Sammy Ann Wiggins?!?  That's got to be the cutest thing ever!

For not liking pink, you did a fantastic job with all the shades!  I bet this will become a family heirloom.

Thanks for the compliments ... using pink was a stretch for me. Using THIS MUCH pink made me dream of Pepto Bismo ...   Grin

Yep, good ole Sammy Ann ... you should hear us calling her ... "Oh Sammy ANNNNNN! Little Sammy ANNNNN!" Poor kid; she'll never escape it ...   Grin
