Libelle is Finished

It has been quite a while since I've posted anything here.
Time just gets away from us sometimes, doesn't it?
In the past month I've finished moving,
closed on my former house,
driven cross country with my daughter, granddaughter
and granddog,
driven to PA and NY to visit family and to attend quilt camp,
gone to northern VA to help my daughter and son in law move into
their new home,
and am continuing to get settled in my new home.
Needless to say,
there has been very little time for quilting.
Plus, I still don't have my new Hidey Hole put together,
but hopefully that will happen in the next couple of months.
One thing I did finish is the baby quilt for my new
Grand Niece.
Her middle name is "Libelle" which is
German for Dragonfly.
I had the perfect layer cake for this little ones baby quilt.

This has to be one of my favorites.
The dragonflies in the fabric are just perfect
for this baby quilt.
I had just found the layer cake 3 days before she was born,
not knowing that Libelle would be her middle name.

I was able to draw a dragonfly and stitch them
into the large triangles in the design.

Parts for a second quilt are cut out, too.
Her grandmother, and her namesake,
needs one of these.

The pattern is Emilia by Robin Pickens.
I have not figured out a new email platform yet,
and hope to do this in the next couple of weeks.
Hopefully it won't be too difficult to move those who
get my blog posts emailed to another platform.
Happy Quilting!

Well, it certainly sounds like you've been busy and not slacking off in the least!! I love the dragonfly baby quilt, especially with the connection to her name. What a special gift for a lucky little one! Welcome home!
