That is SOOOOO cute! The fabric is so whimsical and the embroideries are perfect! And it looks like you solved the ruffle issue...

The only issue is the corners aren't as neat as I would have liked. The purchased ruffle with the bias binding was a pain, but we live & learn. I bought that ruffle some time before I acquired the ruffler foot and felt I just had to use it up. Quilt is in the dryer now, I'm curious to see how it feels because I used a fusible batting which gave a rather stiff feel.

That is beautiful. I love what you did with the embroidery. I am sure it will be most appreciated.

This was one of those time when procrastination paid off. I had the first 2 panels sewn and put the quilt aside when the embroidery machine arrived. After I purchased a few designs, I realized I could use them to hold the layers together.

It washed up soft & a bit wrinkly, just fine. DGrD said it would be perfect for those summer outings where you want to lay the baby down and want something more substantial than a light blanket. The underside does not have ruffles, so that will be comfy for her. Now the countdown begins - 4 weeks to go.
