Transforming a Baby Quilt

 My sweet customer Bev brought me this baby quilt. 
She really wanted the quilting to give the simple quilt some detail. 
So........
First I added the babies initials. Using our starch applique technique.
Then I headed to the quilting machine. I did all custom quilting.
I think the back, with the minky turned out really cute too!
What do you think?

P.S. For those of you that joined me over @ Facebook and Twitter last night I had a lot of fun chatting with you. I'm trying to figure out a date when we can do it again! Does daytime or evenings work best for you?

  9. That is absolutely adorable! I love the small initials :)

    For some odd reason, I can't see all of your posts. I can see on my dashboard that you made a post about being on facebook last night, but when I click on the post it says that the post isn't there. Am I missing something?
