New addition!

This dear little person arrived three weeks ago today, and is the first child for my brother and his beautiful wife.....which means I have another little Niece to spoil! Welcome Marlie xoxo
So now that we're home from our visit and everything has settled down again, I managed to get a quilt top put together on the weekend especially for Marlie:

The fabric is Blush by Basic Grey and I used a PDF Tutorial called "Charm squares baby quilt" from Sew Mama Sew, but I used almost double the number of squares to make it bigger and added baby's name to the bottom.

I don't have to work today so I'm hoping I'll get a chance to start quilting it....I'm itching to send it off now!

Until next time.....
