A Quilt From Crazy Aunt Nicci

Eddy and I are going to be uncle and aunt soon!  Eddy's brother Gene and his amazing wife, Annie, are expecting a baby boy.

My response to all such news is, of course, quilts!

I knew from the start that I wanted to make the Elizabeth Hartman Fancy Forest pattern. Her patterns are seriously the cutest. Annie said to me, "green is always good," so off I went!

Did I mention how cute this pattern is?

Eddy thinks these owls look real angry, but they're totally my favorites.

It was all I could do to wait until after the shower to post these pictures.

The backing fabric is also pretty great.

Ceci was kind enough to take the quilt to the Chicago area baby shower she hosted and Carol was kind enough to send us a picture of Gene and Annie opening the quilt at the baby shower.

Every time I make a new quilt I think it's the best quilt I've ever made. It might be hard to top this one! Welcome, welcome little nephew.
