A Very Special Friend

This quilt was a group effort.  My oldest Daughter worked as a nanny for a very special family.  She wanted to make a quilt for the mother that would forever capture the memories of that time in their lives.  
The daughter was little and would always have the cat in the baby buggy and the son would have Erin make him bows and arrows out of paper and string.(much safer for a 5 yr old)

this quilting is called ZenTangles 

zentangles from the front

from the back

This will be a memory forever captured.

Base Balls and Basket balls are the favorite sport and is featured
by the Curious George fabric

Two Quilt of Valor Quilts to start off the new year.

Extra time was taken to do different blocks so I also took extra time to do a light custom job 

The back has a strip down each side so I centered the front to the back.

This is a log cabin style quilt.  It gives the illusion of curves when the blocks are placed this way.
You can see that the hearts and stars are all along the red pieces.
