Megan's Quilt

Kate, Thom and Isla welcomed Miss Megan Elaine into the world on Monday.
Isla was delivered to our doorstep in the wee hours of the morning for a sleepover while
Kate and Thom went to the hospital.
Kate seemed to be in surprisingly good spirits for being in the throes of labour,
so I took the opportunity to give her her baby quilt. 
Here it is: 

I tried out a couple new things with this one.
I bought a fabric marker and traced some birdies onto white fabric.
I got my inspiration from this YHL reader's project.
I loved how they turned out; although, some of the birds looks a little angry.  Hee hee.

I also did the quilting in diagonal lines.
Very nice effect, I think.

Can't wait to meet you, baby Megan!

I love love love Megan's quilt! It is so beautiful, and I love that it has a bird theme to it like Isla's as well.

You have become quite the quilter Mary Mary!

Megan has a grey crib and it looks beautiful lying over it :)

Thank you so much!

This is one of my favourites. You taught me everything I know, Kate, everything I know. - Mary
