Welcome Alexander David
My sister's family recently welcomed a new grandson, Alexander David. To celebrate this wonderful event I began working on this applique quilt. Cassie showed an interest and it became a mother/daughter project. The starting point was 15 cookie cutters and 15 pieces of washable knit fabrics. It always amazes me what a few simple shapes enhanced with basic stitches can describe; a scotty dog, a bat, an elephant or Wilbur the pig. The border is black fleece and the backing is green fleece.
