The birth of my granddaughter in August has found me contemplating the awesome circle of life: birth, growth, and death. All of us will come full circle in our lives and it's a joy to look back at that journey. I so appreciate the circle of friendship that Material Mavens has afforded me and I look forward to many more encounters with all of you. This 12x12 quilt is cotton raw edged appliquéd and quilted with Superior trilobal polyester thread. Note the background and baby gown are circle fabrics. It is based on a photo of my baby girl Ruth Ann.
