Flower Girl Baby Quilt {Finished}

My friend just had a baby (number 6 to be exact!)
The little 6 pound 8 ounce bundle of joy is so darling! 
With a full head of dark brown hair and a cute little button nose!

I decided my friend deserved a special treat with this one so I decided to make her a small version of Camille Roskelley's Flower Girl quilt.  
I finally finished the last few stitches of binding today and thought I'd take a few pictures before I deliver it.
 

The large blocks finish somewhere around 16" each.


The fabrics I used are some I've been hoarding for a while.
I think most of them are from shabbychic.com.  The pink polka dot and gingham binding are from the line Sweet Shoppe (Calico Candies) by Michele D'Amore for Benartex.com.
 

Linda Childs in Highland, UT. quilted a pretty little floral/swirly design 
on it for me (and did a great job!)


This was a fun pattern to make and the four blocks ended up being the perfect size for a baby quilt.  This little number is in the wash right now - getting all soft and snugly for baby number 6.  I can't wait to deliver it so I can see her again!
