Crafturday- Baby Quilt

Here's a throw-sized quilt I made for my friend's new baby. The pattern is called "Yellow Brick Road" and it's a favorite of mine for fast quilts that show off pretty fabric. I used six fat quarters cut into various sized rectangles and sewn together by machine. I quilted it on the machine as well with variegated purple thread. The backing is a peachy batik.

Here you can see a little bit of the backing fabric and quilting along with the label I made. I have a book called Claire's Cats, which contains a bunch of patterns for appliqued cats. I embroidered one, appliqued it down by hand and added the baby's name and birthdate along with a message. I mailed it out last week and it should have arrived earlier this week. I hope she likes it!
