Nicole's I-Spy Quilt

I made two of these quilts for my cousins' little babies. Yes, two cousins had babies at the same time. They're about 18 mo now -- just starting to really learn about the world around them. Each quilt has 100 different squares, a number of which have special meaning to both the recipients and the quilt maker. This is Nicole's quilt which she just received yesterday:

Mad Tea Party

My mother, whose birthday is in March, has always loved "Alice in Wonderland" -- especially the Hatter. So this year when they brought out fabric with the original Tenniel illustrations, I knew I had to make her a table runner for her birthday. I gave it to her a bit early so she could use it at her bridge party. Gotta love those Mean Mothers!

I promise I'll take some "more better pictures" once I learn more about my new camera. With out further ado, here it is!
