My first quilt! Made for the adorable Denise Carolina Cordova, born September 10. 2010. This quilt is based on this tutorial from Moda Bake Shop, embellished with appliques from various sources (flowers and butterflies from here, birds traced from the picture shown above), and bound using Heather Bailey's tutorial.

Approximate project time: 1 day to buy fabric, cut, and piece. 1-2 days to cut the backing & quilt together. 1 day to embellish (less if you can make decisions quickly!). 2-3 sittings to hand sew the binding on. total time: ~ 1 week.

Notes for next time:
Cut backing larger than front piece, I had to trim quite a bit off of the edges to make things square.
Buy a walking foot! I love my machine, but it did not do very well quilting through many layers off fabric.
