curlicue baby quilt

This little number is going out to a very special baby girl – one who fought for her life the very first few weeks (and won!). Babies are always so inspiring and this one is no exception.

Sorry for the lack of words in this post, but I would like to say although this quilt might seem complicated with it’s curved pieces, it’s actually quite forgiving.

I have a little extra project I made to go along with it, but it’ll have to wait for another post, we’re off to play!  And to make you laugh, here’s a little outtake, I think a bug must have ran into my face.

    I love the fabrics you chose!! I am just finishing up my Curlicue quilt as well and also made it a little smaller I’ll have to try solids mixed in next time.
    So nice that the quilt will go to a special little one!
