My Grand Daughters Birthday Quilt

My grand daughter is turning three years old , and it is time for the next quilt since the baby quilt she had got to small. She is a pink and purple girlie, so I came up with this quilt.
The setting block is the same as the one from my BOM . 

The ideas for the flowers came out of this book" Curiosities and Mischief by Nancy Halverston "

I added rick -rack to all of them.

I made good use of cotton lace. 

Buttons are sewn on tight.

Even tried my own rushing.

I found this great polka dot rick- rack at my local quilt shop.

This is how the quilt turned out. It is 68"by 80" , my grand daughter won't grow out of it for a while. In the setting blocks I quilted a huge flower, and the border has bows and swirls. I am pretty happy with the quilt, and hope Emily likes it also.

Ja, er ist wunderschön geworden! Die bunten Blüten wirken besonders gut mit den schlichteren Zwischenblöcken. Und sehr hübsches Quilting!
