baby quilt and customer quilt

Here is a wee quilt I have finished making for a gift for a baby due later in the year. I was keen on an I Spy quilt as they tend to be suited for either sex, when someone told me about this idea, I thought 'oh I like that'.
The thin strip of yellow in the border is a 'Peeper' (I think that is what they are called?) I think it helps give it a wee lift.
In the close up of the quilting you will see I quilted in words what is in each 'Jar' using the lovely Signature variegated thread.In this photo you can see a peek of the backing fabric which is flannel.

A dear lady I have done a few quilts for, recently gave me this lovely quilt to finish off for her.Margaret has hand stitched a wee vine and flower on some of the cream sashings. This quilt measures 76" x 76"...I always have problems photographing the bigger quilts..still I'm a quilter, not a photographer!
I did a feather on the inner border and leafy vine on outside border.
Here is a shot of the back.

  1. Your baby quilt has turned out really well Leeanne; you're right, the yellow peeper border gives it a lovely boost.
    I bet Margaret is pleased with her quilt - the shot from the back shows off your quilting well - awesome!!
