Elyse's Quilt



We had two new little granddaughters in June born just two weeks apart! Aren't they going to have fun growing up together!! So pleased that I finally finished the second baby quilt! This one was so sweet to stitch! I just loved the fabrics with leaves, raindrops and butterflies! My daughter had decorated the nursery with a woodland theme, so I added the embroidered blocks of baby forest animals. All hand quilted with simple cross hatching in the center and over lapping flower petals in the side triangle border blocks! I rounded the corners a bit to soften the look and I think it gives it an old fashioned appeal. I'm not a fan of cotton candy, but this one reminds me of those fluffy clouds of sugar. Something sweet for our sweet little granddaughter!

Blessings and hugs to all!


  1. It's beautiful Doniene!! I love that you are hand quilting these special quilts.

  2. Happy Friday Doniene, Firstly I have to say that my youngest granddaughter's name is Elyse. She turned 3 in June. I love the quilt-so precious and it will be well loved. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Noreen

  3. It looks like a sweet confection! Did you embroider the blocks, too? Can't believe how much you get accomplished. I am in awe that you are hand quilting the baby quilts. You are such a good grandma!

    The embroidered baby animals are darling and a wonderful addition.
