I'm calling my version of this quilt "Trellis Garden". It is for my 7th grandchild, Cora who was born September 12, 2011. The pattern comes from the September/October 2011 McCall's Quilting issue and is called "I Believe in Pink". It is a scrappy quilt using snowball and star blocks.  The butterfly flight paths and antennae are hand embroidered. The butterflies and flowers are machine applique on my version. My machine applique is also part of the quilting process. The rest of the quilting is stitch in the ditch to follow the trellis which I extended out into the borders.

Since I am working on a series of baby quilts for future great grand children, I love looking at others' efforts.  And I must say this a great quilt.  I can tell how much love went into it. I'm sure Cora will feel warm and secure in it.

What a good idea (that I will steal at my earliest oportunity!!)  I love to applique on quilts, anything I can do by machine.  I added floweres and hearts to one baby quilt and loved how it turned out.

Thank you every one for your lovely comments. I'm so happy with the way this quilt turned out. I'm even thinking of making big sister Hanna a dolly quilt using 2 star and 2 snowball blocks and appliquing a butterfly and flower on it so they can be alike. I just have a sneaking suspicion that Hanna is really going to like the quilt too. Especially since she has butterflies and flowers all over her room.

I love the flowers and butterflies you added.  So sweet!  Yes, I'll bet big sister will want one, too!
