The first draft

There will be small squares at the corners, and probably a small heart quilted in each. I think I can get away with stitching in the ditch for the rest when it’s done. Middle block will have the baby’s name and birthday and be opposite – plain heart, patterned square, probably plain sashing

I’d deep into planning and can’t wait to get to the fabric store. One great thing is that I can use small pieces of so many fabrics, I can buy a fat quarter at a time if I see something that looks good.

This is way too much fun!

Also, this is the first sample, so be kind!

Any opinions and suggestions are welcome otherwise!

    Your applique looks wonderful! I like the idea of embroidering the baby’s name on it. That will make it even more of a treasure. Does the family have a favorite Bible verse that they might like on it as well? ( I did a quilt that is somewhat similar with hearts and sashes. I’ll see if I can find a picture to post.)
