Baby Quilt and Violets

I have recently completed the quilt for my new great grand daughter that is due to be born around April 20th.  The Mum and Dad have not told us what her name is going to be, so the label will have to wait until after she is born.
After using this fabric with all of these vibrant colours, I don't know if this child will be too stimulated to sleep under it. LOL For the backing I used a white flannel with a design of small stars that pick up the colours in the top.  I like the way it turned out.

 This is a close up of the quilting, using the design on the fabric.
This beautiful carpet of violets was in my back lawn, the perfume from them was very strong, however, a white frost yesterday morning killed them all.

Beautiful quilt, Pat. I especially like the ruffle edging. Violets--we're a long way from having violets here! I have yet to see a single daffodil or tulip bloom in my yard. Spring, where art thou?

The quilt will be so nice to snuggle that baby in, how sweet!
Too bad about your cold weather, those violets were beautiful ~

Your quilt is quite lovely, I am sure she will love it. What a shame about the violets, I love them and have lots in my gardem.
