for Lily Rae Mellett
I made this little cutie for the granddaughter of my childhood friend. Besides wanting to try out my new half rectangle triangle template, I wanted to send some special love to this new baby. I knew her great, great grandmother, her great grandmother, I know her grandmother, her mother and I can't wait to meet her. That's a pretty impressive run.
The quilt measures 33" x 42 1/2". The vintage style quilt square in the upper left corner is a Carolina Lily pattern. Is that too obvious a choice? The design that runs the rest of the way across the top is just me doodling with quilt stuff.
Yes, I do know that one rectangle is backwards. My bad. I noticed it when I started machine quilting and said, "Oh well, I guess that is permanent now!"
For machine quoting, I just stitched in the ditch. Ok now time to plan a new quilt!
