My 10th grandbaby. It’s a girl!

imageHaving grandchildren is the best! Preparing for a new baby is so exciting. I love making a new quilt for a new grand baby. I let the new mother find a pattern and help shop for the fabric. I absolutely love this pattern by Laura Heine called Garden Party. My daughter had excellent fabric choices. Each block is machine appliqued.  The 20 inch square blocks went together quickly after I prepared each applique piece by cutting them out and pressing them onto Steam a Seam 2. Using Steam a Seam 2 made it very easy to applique around each piece because it adheres it to the background. The quilt is finished and it is lovely. Now we’re just waiting for the baby.
