wrap her up quick!

My friend Maggie and her husband Walter welcomed a baby girl into their family on February 21st.

Miss Sierra-Ruth being held by her father.  She fittingly has a head full of strawberry-blond hair just like her mother.

Naturally, I had to make Miss S-R a quilt to commemorate the occasion of her birth.

I stitched near the ditch in lines with pink thread and then added a greenish pearl cotton between the rows.
 
The binding I stitched up with the pink thread.  I decided to make all of these stitchings evident because nothing makes me happier than some hand stitches.
 
(front/back)
 
Elephants playing croquet, little girls gardening and the great geometrics and big flowers.
 
 And of course I had to give it a proper tour of Wakarusa via bicycle basket (along with my lunch) before shipping it off to its little owner in Texas.


I'm having a super fun time imagining up the next few quilts on my list!
