A Layer Cake Baby Quilt for Adelaide

It's been a few months since I've shown what's been on my sewing machine!  I currently have a backlog of baby blankets on my desk and three big quilts in various stages of completeness..... but I can call this one done! :)

I made this quilt for a sweet little lady who is due to be here any day!  Adelaide's nursery is decked out in super cute butterflies and owls... so when I was picking fabric, this fabric just jumped out at me.  It's bright and happy.  As my crafty partner in crime Andrea said "you can't not be happy looking at this quilt!" -- I must agree! But I am partial :)

For the pattern, I used this easy to follow tutorial -- HIGHLY recommend if you are looking for a quick, cute baby quilt pattern!  I literally had the quilt top cut and pieced in less than an hour! I wanted to do something more than just straight stitching on this quilt so I used some of the fun decorative stitches on my machine (I was inspired by this quilt to do this!).

I also have another first in this quilt -- I hand stitched in a little note for baby Adelaide along the seam :)

It was surprisingly hard for me to see this one leave the sewing table.  I fell in love with it!  I know that it's in the best hands and that Adelaide will get lots of use out of it (I'm sure!)

And I'm back to my list of six quilts on the table to finish up!  Though I'm tempted to get more of this fabric and make myself a quilt from it!! ;)

What do you think of this quilt?! :)
