Comfort and Joy

Another baby means another baby quilt!  Little baby Joy came just before Christmas, and I wanted her to have something with red and green.  I didn't want it to scream Christmas, so I used a little Bliss fabric that I had in my stash.  
I had a cheater panel and some 2 by 5 inch strips. I ended up quilting it with blue, red, green, and pink.  I quilted straight lines in the off white borders.  I really like the effect.  
My kids call the baby blankets I made for them their special blankets.  My daughter thinks every baby needs one, and just so Joy knows it was made especially for her, I added her name to the corner.

I used blue diamonds from connecting threads for the binding and green from Hancocks for the backing.
