My Welcome for Julia

Julia is a new child for some friends of ours.  And the first girl in that family.  So I am welcoming her with a new quilt for her crib.  Her mom told me what colors she likes and this is what I came up with. 


 The clouds are not really yellow.  They are white with little gold dots in them. 


 I did steal the idea from a quilt that I had pinned.  It had different colors but is otherwise much the same.


 It came together very quickly as it is all fused on.  There was no sewing until I did the quilting.


 I put an extra layer of batting behind the clouds to let them puff out.


As I am generally not a modern quilt person, I had a daughter who helped me with the fabric picking and the design.  I did turn out to be a soft looking quilt.  The pictures are not a true look of it.  It turned out much nicer than I had almost thought it would.
