Hello and welcome to Greece! I’m so happy to join once again ‘Blogger’s Quilt Festival’, hosted and organized by amazing Amy! Thank you Amy for this fantastic quilt show!
In summer I was happy and honoured to make a special custom order quilt. I was asked to make a wall quilt for a new born baby girl. Then I met Bunny at Kristy’s blog ‘Quiet Play’ and asked if she could help me to create a cute baby quilt.
Bunny took the lead on this project and asked her little friend Dragonfly to help her.
They worked until late during those hot summer nights to get the quilt done in time.
Bunny and Dragonfly gathered more friends, they made stars and heart. Dragonfly had her little tools with her …

It was nice to have this happy quilt in my sewing room for few days. I have now turned everything upside down and around in my sewing room. Great to have (almost) everything organized again. I shall give you a tour soon.
Bunny chose pink backing and Dragonfly stitched waves, hearts and stars and flew with her nail and thread around Bunny’s friends.
Dear Bunny, I miss you and your friends! Please come back soon!
