"Butterfly Baby" Quilt...

It's finished! Butterfly Baby quilt has been added to The Boutique and is ready to go to someone's home. The finished quilt measures 31" x 36" and is made of high-quality, Moda cotton with Warm and Natural batting. It's just the right size to be baby's first quilt.

I really love the colors. They're bright and stimulating, and work for either a little boy or little girl.
I also made a small storage bag to match, which will be perfect as ready-made gift packaging. Later, it can be a place to keep baby's toys or supplies, because the quilt is bound to become a favorite "blankie".

You can read more about the quilt by visiting my Brynwood Boutique. Just click here for the listing. It can be found under the "Brynwood Baby" link at the top of the Boutique.
Yesterday was overcast and rainy, but we need the water, so I don't complain. I just spend more time in the studio making things to share with you. I'll be back tomorrow to show you what else I've been working on.

A few of you have asked me to do a tutorial on basic ribbon embroidery, so I'll be working on that in the next week or so to share with everyone. Please don't ever feel like you're imposing to ask me for a special post. I'm happy to write about special topics that interest you whenever I'm able. Although I don't always respond to every comment you leave for me, please know that I read every single one and appreciate hearing from you. Thanks a million!

Hi Donna, I love your baby quilt. I can see it now being carried around by a little one. We got some rain last night and starting the day at 73 degrees. It probably won't stay that way, but we can always wish for it. Have a wonderful day and I am off to work. Your Missouri Friend.

How gorgeous!!!! I am about to start making a baby quilt for a friend. I am considering NOT prewashing the fabric and just washing it after because I want it to look scrunchy and cozy... your thoughts?

Beautiful quilt and bag. Love the colors.

The quilt bag idea is perfect not only to carry or store the quilt, but as a gift wrap idea.
