The Joys of Quilting - Mary Had A Little Lamb

Check out this beautiful Growth Chart by Susybee!!

My sister Janet pieced this one for her GD
Mary Morningstar.

She'll label it "Mary Had A Little Lamb"! 

She asked if I had time to quilt this for her -- it's hard to pass up a quilting session since I'm constantly in training on my DSM -- and my sister got me into this mess to begin with (thanks -- Love you!)...

So I had my hand at quilting the borders and some echo stitching around the sheep.  It was so much fun....

I wanted to do more echo quilting but we thought it might get in the way of writing the height and dates on the panel.

Here is a picture after Janet put the binding on...

Isn't it adorable?

Here is another panel by Susybee -- my favorite of course -- because of the Red Bird!!

There is a giraffe as well -- he is really cute.... and the coordinating fabrics are special!!

Thanks for stopping by today -- I'm linking into Angie's Applique Thursday.
