Charity's Baby quilt

My granddaughter, Charity, was born on January 22nd, 2010. I did get her quilt finished, except for appliqueing the pink flowers onto the quilt to make it more suitable for a girl. When we got the call that it was a girl, I quickly cut out a couple of flowers and took them along to the hospital for the baby visit and we decided that they would look great. I finally got the quilt back yesterday and sewed some pink flowers onto the quilt. Now it can go back to baby! It is already being well used. Here is the finished quilt:

It is stitched in the ditch around the circles and then quilted with loops in the background with a variegated King Tut thread.

The applique was done with another variegated King Tut thread on my Bernina 830 which does a lovely satin stitch.

The pattern was in a Fons & Porter magazine. When I locate it, I will add the information.

Jacqui, the quilt turned out lovely. Charity will enjoy snuggling under it for a long time to come. A neutral quilt, then dressed for the appropriate baby, what a good idea!

Greetings from chilly (southern)Australia. P.S. I'm freezing today, don't think I would survive in Canada.
