A Baby Quilt For Ava ~


AVA , don't you just love that name ??

My husband's great niece had a baby girl this month .


I made this cute quilt for her.




The idea came from Mary at -http://www.maryquilts.com/strings/half-square-strings/ she has some great ideas for string quilts .
Let me tell you this is so fast to make . I was only sewing a couple of days and it was done .


I machine quilted this one on my sewing machine and did the swirl quilting design freehand (a first for me) .

I think I am going to make a bag too go with the quilt. ......
