Baby quilt

Now that Christmas is over, I can post some of the projects I've finished.  This is the quilt I made my newest grandchild, Abigail.  The pattern is Lollipop Hill from Reets Rags to Stitches.  Their pattens are mostly prim and, while I love prim, I wanted this to be a bright and cheerful quilt since it's for a baby.  Abigail's mom, AKA DD#1, had to hear the whole time I was working on it, "I like the quilts I've made all the other kids but I think this is my favorite child's quilt EVER!"   I think she heard it several times a day.  It's hand appliqued and hand quilted.

It's hard to see the quilting in a picture but there's a path leading up the hill to the lollipops and they have spiral stitching to look like actual lollipops.  I also put a ball with a star on it between the horses but that doesn't even really show when you're holding the quilt.  Still, I like knowing it's there.  Some of the fabrics were new, others from my stash.  I buy brights sometimes but need a special quilt to use them and this one is definitely special to me!
