I finally got to meet my niece a few weeks ago! She's almost a year old, but she lives very far away, and it took us a long time to (finally) make the trip.
I started a quilt soon after she was born, but it took me a while to finish it up. I managed to get it finished before we traveled to see her.
I still love making the Dresden Plate block, and this quilt was a lot of fun. I used a jelly roll of fabrics, but I don't remember the name of the fabric any more-- sorry! And since I bought it in-person, I don't have an electronic record of it either. But I liked color combinations and the various prints.
I used a simple quilting pattern, but I like the effect. I just continued the lines from between the petals to the edge of the quilt block.
Since it's a quilt for a baby, I thought a brown background and quilt backing would be a good idea. That way the quilt can really be used without fear of stains.
I'm happy with how this turned out. My nephew especially liked it, and my niece seemed to as well.
