A Joyful Day - Happy Birthday Ellie Quinn Taylor!

Note: Not sure why this didn't post yesterday. Will post it now.

Today was a great day! My great Niece was born!

Here's our new member of the family! Ellie Quinn Taylor, born at 12:43 am April 30, 2015! She's covered in the quilt mom and I designed, and mom made.

I chatted with my cousin for a good hour. We're going to spend time together in a couple weeks. She's not that far away. I'm looking forward to seeing her again.

 Basted the flower on the basket today. Then decided to go ahead and applique it down.

I basted the first petal on. That will be my next step. I set this aside for a little bit.

I picked up my eagle block and started working on the flower. I'm going to finish the flower up. I like the wings. That fabric on the tips will be the body of the eagle as well. I have a lot of leaves and grapes to do.
