Nanette's Tumbler Bows Baby Quilt

I've been a "Nanette-wanna be" (of Freda's Hive) from the moment I met her. I love her eye for fabric, and patterns. My dream is to follow her around for about a week and watch as the creative juices flow.
Nanette is in St. George for a few days visiting her sisters. Today I gave them a tour of Superior Threads. Unfortunately I forgot my camera in the car, or I would share a picture with you.
Not to worry, tomorrow we will be together again, and I'll make sure to have my camera at hand.

One of my goals for 2009 is to make baby quilts. I love this pattern by Nanette called "Tumbler Bows Baby Quilt".

I gathered a lot of Amy Butler fabrics that make it bright and cheery. I think this one is very girly.
I still need to add a backing and do the quilting, but at least the top is finished.
I also finished a few more pot holders
