"Sassy"

So, I decided to name Sadie's quilt "Sassy", partly because of the fabric line, Sasparilla, and partly because I think Sadie is gonna have a sassy personality.  We could see evidence of that even before she was born (seriously, you could see the attitude on the sonogram!)
 
The lighting wasn't optimal this morning, it's pretty dreary outside, but still better than the crappy indoor lighting in my house.
 
It's made from Sasparilla (Riley Blake) charm packs, with yardage from the same line for the binding and back.
 



 
Oddly, only the horizontal quilting shows up in this pic, but I promise there are vertical lines as well.

 
See, I told ya! 
 
 
(And look how much straighter this straight-line quilting is than it was on my previous quilt!)
 
I'm not extremely happy with this label, but at least it has the pertinent info on it.
 
The pen I used was too fine, I had to trace over the writing several times.  I'll have to order a new pen. 

 
Now I just have to give her a good washing (I used basting spray so I want to get all that out) and she will be ready for Miss Sadie to snuggle with.

  13. I love the name and the story!

    One of my own baby quilts (I'm naming them this year in an effort to keep better track) is called Sadie, and I was picturing a little cowgirl when I worked on it. :-)
