Cora's Quilt

 Yay!  A completed quilt!
I brought it outside as soon as the label was done.  It was a gorgeous day, but the light was a little harsh.  Some day, I'll learn how to use my new camera!


It is for a new baby in my husband's office.  
(The baby doesn't work in the office, her dad does!)
Her name is Cora Mae.  Isn't that sweet?
 

 Yesterday was quilting/binding/labeling day.


 I used my go-to loopy quilting pattern.  It took a little over an hour and 3 bobbins to quilt the whole thing.  It's so crinkly and snuggly after washing!


Focus fabric: Riley Blake, Happier by Deena Rutter
5" charms from stash and 4x5 fabric swap
 34" x 51"


 Two years ago, I made a quilt for Cora's big brother, Jude.  It was fun to go back and see how much my own "little" boy has grown in two years!  He's away at camp this week, or I would have had him hold up this new quilt for me.  He's still pretty goofy!

Both quilts are beautiful! I especially like that you used the white print for every other block, seems to highlight the colors so well.
