Delilah's Delilah

Could there be a model any cuter than this? I think not!!!


I was able to finish her new quilt in record time(for me). I think when you only have a little time available to you, you sure start making the most of it. I just sewed whenever i got the chance.


Look at that leg...chubby, chubby leg!! I love it!!!


i randomly laid out the blocks from the Delilah charm packs that i had and really had to try hard at not over thinking it. I did not want to get stuck at some point in the process because i have terrible analysis paralysis.


The backing is from the same line, and i accidentally overbought yardage so i have plenty for another project.


I quilted it using a hot pink thread that matched the pinks in the fabric...husbands choice. I wanted to play it safe and use my standard off white but he voted otherwise. He said live on the wild side, so i went with it...and i think i like the result. The above pic is courtesy of my little helper, Mitchell....he wanted to help me with my quilty photo shoot. Man, it is hard to hand a nice camera over to a 6 year old.



Sharing finishes over at Amylouwho's has been on hold for a little while, but today she is back and the linky for sew and tell is open. How perfect that i finished this just in time to have something to share with all of you lovely ladies. Go on over and check everyone's projects out, they never disappoint.

The quilt is really cute...but not as cute as your little precious baby girl! I love seeing how much she's grown...and her little grin is so sweet.

It's very sweet, Leslie! A perfect project for a mom of a newborn. Not too big, not too difficult but very cheery and happy-looking.

Lovely baby girl and the quilt is adorable. I really like the bright pink stitching but I would have been afraid to use it too.
Did you use a quilting foot or regular sewing foot for quilting the straight lines?
