Liberty quilt

My sister Yurika and her husband Daisuke welcomed their first baby in July. They namedher Erika.  Such a cutie!  My mom tells me she looks just like me when I was a baby.  My parents didn't own a camera when I was little, so it is fun to hear that.  

I decided to make a quilt for her.  It took me a while to know exactly what kind.  I wanted it to be very special and I set the bar high for myself.  I wanted it to be cute and girly, but at the same time mature enough that you could have it in the living room.  I also thought that some of the patterns clashed with eachother when they were placed next to eachother.  In the end this is what I came up with.  

I gathered all my favorite fabric that I was sure I would never be able to cut into, and pieced them together with some solids of pink and gray to break up the busy pattern.

Most of the fabric is Liberty.  Each is a work of art and makes my heart sing every time I look at it.
