Flowers for Madeleine - An Heirloom Baby Quilt

My favorite finish this year!
This is the shower invitation that inspired me, shown on the backing fabric I chose:
Raw-Edge Applique is a new technique for me, and I really had fun with it. Quilting was the best part though, I just echo-stitched the flowers, cherries, and leaves with matching Aurifil 50wts :
Quilter's Choice cotton batting gives it a perfectly soft drape, and the large bubbles have a great texture for Madeleine to squish between her fingers
I love the lamb print for the backing:
And a cute little label to finish:-)
And Woo-Lah!
I had one final photo shoot before it was off in the post office!
I am entering this one in the Bloggers Quilt Festival Baby Category,
