I have a new grand niece.
Her name is Julie Libelle.
Julie is after her grandmother, my sister in law,
and Libelle is German for dragonfly.
Grandma Julie loves dragonflies.
Well, I've had a quilt finished for this little one for a while.
(I haven't unpacked it yet from my move,
but am pretty sure I know where it is!)
However, several days before she was born,
I was looking through a box of fabrics and found a
layer cake of fabrics with dragonflies and such.
I told myself that I needed to make something with it
soon, since it was so pretty.
Little did I know that I would have Libelle arrive within days.
I saw this pattern, Emilia, by Robin Pickens on line and knew
it was perfect for these fabrics.
It was a bit fussy to make this from 10" squares,
but it came together and I love the results.
This needs a good pressing before it's quilted.
I love how the design goes out into the borders.
Do you see all of the dragonflies?
I'm looking forward to meeting my niece and
giving her this quilt.
(I think I may have to make her grandmother one, too!)
I am linking to Design Wall Monday today.
