Mary has a (not so little) quilt

I had a WONDERFUL day today, meeting my dear friend's Sarah's gorgeous 4 week old daughter Mary. She is soooooo cute! And she has such a strong, beautiful mumma. :-)

I finished their quilt last month, and I have been SO excited to give it to them and share it here! I made the Floral Bouquet quilt out of the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam Lintott and Nicky Lintot. I used a jelly roll of Snippets by American Jane by Moda and also a white Jelly Roll Basics by Moda. It's the largest quilt I have ever made (60 x 88 inches). So for the first time I used the services of a professional quilter, the delightful Barb Cowan of The Quilt Connection. Lily picked the hearts quilting design and I think it turned out beautifully.

It was really lovely to give a quilt to Sarah, who has stitched her love into so many quilts for many of her friends and family.
