Another Amelia Baby Quilt

My boss and his wife just had a baby girl who has some potential heart defects (which will hopefully resolve on their own).  I had scraps of Amelia fabric from another quilt and whipped this one up.  I am pretty sure I have enough scraps for at least 3 more Amelia baby quilts.  I originally bought a kit and there was so much left over so I ordered the blue paisley for the stripes and the blue flowers for the backing.  I have added pieces of lavender Amelia that was scraps from another Amelia quilt.  I love, love, love this line...I even have the entire thing in 0.5 yards in my stash for a project for my girls.
My quilt holder was a lot more fidgety that I thought.



The pattern is an altered version of the Me and My Sister Designs Easy as 10 pattern.  I messed up and forgot the top and bottom strips of white.  The batting is from my ever shrinking stash of scraps :)

In other news my old sewing machine went to sewing machine heaven.  I took it in for annual service and because I was having some issues with it when I was FMQing.  It turns out a little teeny tiny piece of needle broke and severely damaged the shaft.  It was going to be a minimum of $500 to get it fixed.  Instead of fixing it, I traded it in and got a new one.  I am in love with my new Janome Memory Craft 7700.  It is faster, has a bigger throat space and quilts amazingly well!
