New Baby Quilt and Teddy Bear

I made this for Brittony's baby girl that is due in Oct.,She had asked me about making one with the fabric of her choice , she had a comforter given to her in the flower and plaid
  I suggested the ivory eyelet lace

  I made this teddy Bear at the last minute from scraps of the quilt block. I had the pattern for many years and have been wanting to make one so this was a good chance.
 New Baby's name is going to be Kylee ,named after her father Kyle

Close up of bear's face , I hope the nose is not too big, everyone tells me it is perfect .
 Close up I did a fancy stitch in the blocks and then I used a stencil for the first time on the boarder with free motion sewing, I usually do my own free motion design or stripple , I brought some stencils a few months ago and decided to use on this time.
The baby shower was last sat, the host provides a brunch ,she used a story book theme ,and had asked that we use a story book signed by us instead of a card . What a beautiful idea !
It all turned out wonderful , the food was very good too.

 This month we made pencil holders ~we used different size cans ( I let them choose) ,then I had them draw with markers and add the sticky flowers ,Dino's or space things ,we then glued the paper to the can ,
My Grand daughter Sarah put a divider inside hers to separate the pencils from the pens.Good idea!
