Delightful Desert - A finish


I am just in love with this quilt!

These sweet animals decorated my design board for weeks.   While I love the cuddly bunny.....


..... the crane might just be my favorite.


For the quilting, I went with an all over FMQ design of loops, done on my domestic machine.  I briefly thought about custom quilting each animal but decided I wanted something that was playful.  The quilt is backed in the softest flannel and I'm hoping makes a baby happy. 

This was my very first commission quilt - I've always wanted to make a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman so was thrilled to tackle this one.


I'll be linking up my finish with  Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, and Finished or Not Friday.

  7. Another blogger mentioned that she is dealing with this comment issue by commenting on her own blog post and then checking off the box to be notified of any other comments to that post.

    1. Yes, I read this too - and it helps with notifying that someone commented but it isn't helping me send emails to respond to folks which is what I love to do. Hopefully blogger will fix this soon.
