B is for Brooklynn

When my friend Becca told me she was pregnant (about a year ago), I decided I wanted to make her new little bundle a quilt.  My grandma quilts a lot and after talking to her  I knew I was up to this challenge.  I hinted to this quilt back here.

I scoured books and the internet but couldn't find one that I really liked, so I made up my own.

The squares are 8X11, I used my Cricut (love) to make the template for my flowers and the letter, the dragonflies were freehand.  I decided to use flannel because it is super soft (and on sale!).  All of the appliques are handstitched and secured with fabric glue.  Boy does flannel like to fray.  And stretch.

I loved it and can't wait to swaddle her up in this cozy creation!
