Sweet Dreams baby quilt

Wow what an incredibly busy year I've had so far... I've gotten several things done despite having severe pain in my right now... however I've not had a chance to really update my blog of what all I've been up to.

However today I have a treat... I've just finished the quilt top of a baby quilt entitled 'Sweet Dreams".  I think it came out beautifully so I simply had to share with everyone!

The center panel is cross stitched... a design from Pine Glen Designs it was then bordered in a 2" pastel stripe fabric and then the next pieces have Sweet Dreams which were printed on fabric with an ink jet printer and hand appliqued onto the fabric.  once those were all put together it was bordered with 6" strips of crazy patched pastel fabrics and then bordered again with the same pastel stripes fabric.
Sweet Dreams
This will then be quilted and a binding put on.  The angel will be hand quilted around and possibly the Sweet Dreams as well.  the rest will be machine quilted.

This quilt will be available for sale during a couple of local Native Pow Wows this summer.  I sure hope it is picked up by someone who can truly appreciate the work going into this quilt.
