Quincy Quilt

A dear friend of mine is having her fifth baby (fourth girl) and I wanted to make her something special. I had nine extra purple propellers, from this quilt, and decided to make her a baby quilt. This little gal will arrive with tons of raven black hair just like her siblings and I think she'll look so cute wrapped up in this new baby quilt. I love the little 30's minty green jack russell inner border from Aunt Grace (Marcus Brothers) I think it is the perfect match.

She isn't due for a few more months, so I want to add a few embroidered embellishments in the white borders, just to make it special. I've heard a few friends joke, because she this will be their fifth baby, they should name her Quincy! I think that is a cute idea.

I love your pinwheel quilts! I've never seen that block before - it's wonderful!

SO fun to be with you yesterday. We should do it regularly! Thanks for your support and encouragement. I love your idea too - I think you should go for it!
