A week or two ago I posted the beginnings of a baby quilt I was ask to make for a friend to give as a gift for her bestie's first baby.
You can see that post in the Featured Post.  Well we have come quite a way along with it.
The top got finished and the first border with lace sewn on.  I tacked the corner lace under and hand stitched it down in just the corner to make sure it did not ravel.  All the stitching will be covered by the batting and back.  It will never show, but reinforces those corners to make sure they stay put.  
A view of the lace along the borders, which goes all around the quilt top. 
Just as a side in the pink color way of the theme fabric I made a child's pillowcase with the lace insert.  
I have finished the top and I am now quilting it.  I should be able to have it ready to post on Friday.  For now it is still a work in progress so I am linking up with:


  1. This is absolutely adorable. I love the lace on this piece. It's beautiful! --Andrea

  2. DonnaleeQ - I loved this fabric when you shared it the first time, and still do. That pillow case is just fab. Can't you just see when that baby grows just a bit, laying on the floor or couch on the pillow and covered with the quilt. Awe - they will love this. ~smile~
