Penelope


It's Finished!  Well, actually it has been finished for a long time, but maybe I should say it's photographed!  That's been the only thing holding me back from mailing it to the cutest little girl!  Now that Christmas is here I decided it was time to bite the bullet, take the photographs and send it out to California.  I hope Penelope and her parents like it.  

This is the baby quilt that got me back into quilting and was my first exploration into creating my own modern design.  Needless to say, I'm now a full blow fabric whore!  

It is hard to see in the photos, but the dots are made from polka dot fabric, the field is an eggplant purple, and the binding is a polk dot batik in turquoise (more detail below).







My first handmade embroidered label, and my stitching gets better with each one I make.
