S is for Sabrina

My sister-in-law gave birth to her 4th baby yesterday, she and my brother now have a matched set: 2 boys and 2 girls.  Sabrina and her Mommy and Daddy are doing well.

I shared the quilt I made for her on MQResource awhile back (I actually made it and sent it before she was even born.  I know, amazing…), but I only ever posted teasers here, some blocks in progress, the pillowcase it got delivered in.  In honor of her birth, I thought I’d share the actual quilt, along with a gratuitous shot of the dog walking away:

Have I mentioned how much I love this black and white polka dot fabric?  Yeah, I’ve only used it once or twice or…10 times before…

For the quilting, I used a computerized design from Anne Bright called Venice. It stitched out beautifully. The thread is Sew Fine and Bottom Line.

I drew and cut the “S” freehand.  It’s a really great initial for a name, don’t you think?

I can’t wait to meet Sabrina.   I hope that some day soon her Mom or Dad will send me a picture of her with her quilt.  They can wait awhile, though, I’m sure they are kinda busy right now.

    Congratulations, Aunt Suzanne! I love the polka dot fabric, and it’s adorable in this quilt. I think S is a very fine letter, but I have to say that I like L a bit better. 😉
