We have been celebrating the sweetest news a la Fence.
There is a new cousin to love.
To grow with.
Another little girl for the gaggle.
And we are so very very thrilled.
Little Rory, we can't wait to love you up in person. (New Mexico is So Far!)

Supplies: vintage sheeting + quilting cotton + flannel backing.
Technique: In lieu of batting, I used simple quilter's cotton inside. This is not a fluffy or stiff quilt -- very lightweight! Running-stitch embroidery both before and after quilting. Cotton heart doily applique on reverse. Crazy quilted stripes in all directions.
I loved making this one with all my heart. The sheets are so incredibly soft, and the doily adds that special extra texture that babies love. We heard the nursery was pink and brown (or tan), so I just went with that. I hope it doesn't clash too terribly much and gets lots of use.
