Eliza Rose

I actually got something done after work last night.... two days in a row! I worked on this baby girl's quilt that I started months ago. And Guess what? This quilt has a future home. My daughter's good friend is expecting a baby girl in October whose name will be Eliza Rose. Isn't that a beautiful name? The whole time I was working on this quilt I kept thinking about little Eliza Rose. I don't know what her personality will be like but this quilt just looks like a quilt for an Eliza Rose. :o)





Now it has come to my attention that I should give my quilts a name and that should be included on the label on the back. I usually do call my quilts something but never really used my imagination to come up with a unique name for each one.

How about "Girlie Girl I Spy"? There are lots of little things in this quilt that a child could play "I Spy" with. If you look closely at these blocks in progress you can see a ballerina's legs, a lion, a John Deere symbol, buttlerflies, various flowers, a soldier, a lady's hat and more.





The backing of the quilt will be this cute pink and green frog design. How about "Frilly Frogs"?



Hmmmm.... I need to ponder this some more. Any ideas?

Awww... Eliza Rose is going to have a beautiful quilt!!! I really like this pattern and hope to make one like it one day. As for naming your quilt, why not "Eliza Rose"? It has such a nice ring to it!

I was thinking "Eliza Rose" too. I love that name! I really like the colors and fabrics you chose for this one. So pretty and perfect for a sweet little girl.

beautiful quilt for a baby with a very sweet name! i love Rose for a middle name.
the frilly frogs would look great as the backing - I think -

I love the fabric for Eliza Rose. It's going to be beautiful! The froggy pattern is cute too though I can't think of a name.

What a lovely name! We almost named our daughter Savanna Rose but went with a different middle name. The fabrics you chose are beautiful. That's going to be a pretty quilt!

I love all the different printed pictures. This is so special for little ones...I've caught my daughter enjoying more than one crazy quilt while getting ready for a nap - fun to look at.
