Baby quilt

I made this a couple of years ago and when I came across it in my quilt stash, I realized I'd never taken a photo of it. It was a kit that I purchased at The Quilt Asylum in McKinney, TX.

Echo quilted around hearts and stitched in the ditch, all by machine.

Machine sewn handmade greeting cards, for a swap.

Rose fabric, black lace, black eyelash trim, antiqued paper, all machine sewn to card stock. A bit frou-frou; I hope my swap partner likes it.
Animal print paper, black cotton fabric, faux leather fabric, all stitched to card stock. Lettering done by hand with black gel pen. I think this card could have used a bit more "dressing up," but I couldn't figure out what else to do with it, and I was afraid that anything else I added would look wrong, so I decided to err on the side of caution.(To complicate matters, my swap partner lives in Germany, so I didn't want to load up either card with a lot of English text! "RAWR" seems rather universal. ha ha)
