David has an extended family "cousin" Christmas exchange, and this year, he drew his California cousin who just had a baby girl.
I already had the blocks pieced and squared up using Sujata Shah's free form method from her excellent book Cultural Fusion Quilts. So it was quick work to piece the top.
I don't have pretty detail photos to show at this point - I have deleted them - because - in all my cleverness I appliqued the wrong name onto the front of the quilt - doh! Baby's name is Amina but I appliqued big sister's name Emony. On the way to the post office with my son driving, I realized my mistake and quilter hysterics ensued!
So, time to create a patch in the form of a big hippie flower... this aqua print is from Japan and it is a scrap from the backing fabric.
