No, that's not a typo. Both babies have Grace as their middle name. And their first names are 3-syllable names that start with "A". I have to stop and think before I say (or type) either name – but I don't see them often. I'll bet the members of the family that see them all the time have the names down pat.
Alea, Addyson's mom, didn't have any color or design preferences. This quilt is just about the fabric. The center is a background that I had in my stash that didn't have a home. It found a home! I added borders and scattered butterflies from Applique With Attitude over the surface of the quilt – stitching them with #12 perle cotton and a running stitch.
Addyson's name isn't appliqued on the quilt top so I quilted it in with my signature. I had fund with the quilting – combining lines and flowers. I especially like the look of the two motifs meeting in the border. I hadn't done that before, but I will do it again.
I intentionally did not put a lot of applique on this quilt and I kept the pattern on the busy side. I want Addyson, like her cousin Annabelle, to use her quilt and love it to pieces!
