Quilt for Gracie

The baby shower for Sara was this afternoon so now it's safe to show you the quilt I made for baby Gracie

It all started with that bird fabric (surprised aren't' you.......). I just loved it and knew I had to make the quilt with it. The brown polka dot fabric I bought, but the rest of the fabrics came out of my stash (and the other fabrics I had bought to use......well they are now IN my stash!) This quilt had a few "firsts" for me - it was the first time I used different fabrics in the binding. Silly little thing I know, but I like the way it turned out. They landed a little more symmetrically than I had planned but still good.
It was also the first time I pieced a quilt on the back

This was mainly because I REALLY wanted to use the polka dot fabric on the back and there just wasn't enough so I had to add a strip of something else to make it long enough. And yes you might recognize the brown fabric on the binding in the pillow from the precious post - it was lying on my table still and worked it's way into a second project. Funny how that happens.
If you are interested in the Pay it Forward still let me know - i would love to send you something :o)
