Neapolitan Valentine

Long story short.
Two years ago I started this wall hanging.
After quilting it with pink thread...I just didn't like it.
So I hid it away in a box.
Took it out a few weeks ago, and made myself finish it.
(I hate unfinished projects!)
The colors reminded me of ice cream so I named it Neapolitan.
(I like to name my quilts!)
I think the blocks look like Dutch Windmills.
(I love striped binding!)
And now I'm so happy it's "finished" and just in time for Valentine's day!
And there you have it,

"Simply Sonya"

Finally the finish of my Dilly Dally creation...
For my niece's new addition, Sonya Rose,
born December 28, 2012.


When I started this quilt, I wasn't sure who
it was going to be for.  And then came Sonya. ; )

The top (front) is made of simple pinwheel blocks
 and a prairie point border from charm packs
 and small dotted white on white fabric.

The back and binding are made of the same Dilly Dally
multi-colored fun flowers.

Ready to be delivered to the new baby!

And so happy for another finish!
