Isabel Grace's Quilt

My niece was born this past July and of course she needed a quilt. Due to lack of funding, I challenged myself to make it entirely from my stash. I even sketched up a pattern to use them in. 

I added some mitered corners, which look especially fun when you use stripes.

In this picture and the one below you can see the quilting I did. It was sort of wavy lines with little loops. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly it went. Granted, baby quilts go fast in general, but this seemed to blow by. I will definitely try this, and other variations again.

I wasn't able to finish it until after she was born, but to my credit, she did come 8 weeks early! Tommy brought it down to her earlier this month along with some other goodies. Girls are so fun to shop for! I had hoped to make some other things for her, but my own pregnancy exhaustion was in full swing.

Here is Isabel in the NICU with my mother in law. Isabel has been at home for quite a while now, and is doing great! We are so thankful to the Lord for his care over her and his kindness toward her mama's family.
