Nico's Woodland Babies

My newest Grandson, Nicolas Jonathan Jaeger, was born on February 9, 2016.  I was just finishing his quilt and took it out to California with me when I went to spend some time with him and his mom and dad. It was such a wonderful visit. Nico is a very sweet baby and I spent hours cuddling with him. 

The theme for his room is woodland babies, so I made a quilt for him that fit that theme.

 The animals are hand appliqued.

I quilted the borders using my long arm machine and then did free motion quilting around the animals using my regular sewing machine.

Big flowers

I'm so happy to have finished a quilt I pieced a couple of years ago using Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I love the huge, colorful florals and the geometric designs that accent the floral colors so well.

It is quilted with a design called Brocade Fans.
