H’s Baby Quilt

I want to make it clear right up front — I did not make this quilt.  I only had the privilege of sewing on a sleeve so it can be hung up.

This lovely quilt was made by Connie Coenen in 1989 for H who was born in 1988.  She is the daughter of a friend and colleague.  This quilt is done using both hand and machine work.  It measures 58 in X 68 in.  There are many different type of fabrics used giving it a tactile feel in addition to the visual picture.

Here is a closer view of the center scene.

These trees are made from a fine wale corduroy.  They have a lovely feel to them. 
 
This flower is embroidered.  I wish the photo was better so you could really appreciate the work.
 
Rather than sewing on a label, Connie embroidered her name and the date here.
