Quilt for a friend

This post by Tanya. This is a quilt we made for friends.  They gave us tons of hand me downs for little miss Julia.  It measures about 52 by 52 inches.  We have planned on making them a lap quilt for quite a while,we just had to get Christmas over with and have some free time.  This is the first quilt that has a label made with the new embroidery machine.

We figured this was the perfect quilt to have for their family with four girls. It has a ivory minky back, so it should be great to curl up on the couch with. Overall I think the quilt and new label turned out pretty well. I'm sure I will get better with the labels over time. It is the biggest quilt I have pieced so far. It is pretty much the last of the "Twirl" fabric, OK some of the small flowers are in the quilt Richard is making.

We delivered the quilt last night. The girls all tried to claim it, their 2 year old thinks it belongs to her.  We are going to help the 11 year old piece a simple quilt top with odds and ends from our stash this Saturday.  Yep, and we came home with 3 more bags of baby clothes. I don't think I will need to buy Julia clothes in a while.
