My only local granddaughter will be a year old tomorrow. This is the April quilt from Lori Smith's quilt of the month patterns I made for her to remember her first birthday. I always hand applique but not here. I also love to hand quilt but this quilt has a flannel back so I machine quilted it, too. So not me! But I didn't want to fight the flannel. The back is a wavy pink and white stripe - very spring and very girly.
When I was first looking for fabrics, I found Hallmark had a celebration line so this has birthday cakes and hats and balloons in several of the pieces. I tried to cut so they'd show even though they don't in this picture.
