Stella's Quilt

I made this quilt for our first granddaughter, Stella -- born August 7, 2015. 
 My friend free motion quilted it on her home machine -- she did a super duper job!
 The back is dotted purple on purple -- hard to see the dots but trust me, they're there.
 The quilt measures approximately 40x52" -- something Stella can grow into & use for a very long time.
 I used some of the same fabric that I used for Lauren's (Stella's mom) apron which I made months ago.

Honu Quilt

 I bought most of these fabrics while in Hawaii last January 2015. 
 Close up of a honu (sea turtle).  I fussy cut each honu to be the "center" of each block.
 Used a simple fabric for the back -- sort of sea-like.
 Did all of the machine quilting on my Pfaff home machine -- was lots of pushing & pulling -- the quilt measures about 46"x58" -- just big enough to be a bit of a wrestling match -- but I won.
