a quilt for Cecily

Cece, is what we call her, is my nieces daughter and she is two.  She and her sister get to come up and visit us here on the farm one day a week while her parents work.   I love my days with them and often we go on excursions around the farm and sometimes we go for ranger rides.

I made a quilt for her trying to get it done by her first birthday, but ended up getting it to her a few months late.  Picking the material is always fun and with Cece, I knew it had to be bright and cheery.  The pattern was ‘Sweet Pea’ from The Pattern Basket. It was perfect for her as she is a little sweet pea girl.

It is machine pieced and quilted. I’m still not a pro at machine quilting, but I keep trying and really that is all that matters. I machine embroidered the tag on the back and it makes it special and fun
