Baby Dodson is Here!

Olivia Victoria Dodson has arrived! I am so excited for my friends, Bret and Sarah. They are totally in love with their little bundle of joy, and what a cutie she is!

After I finished the baby blanket I was making for her, I decided to make a photo quilt. Originally, it was going to be made with baby photos of all the people invited to the shower, but as I didn't get enough interest in it, I decided to use photos TAKEN at the shower instead. It worked out a lot better.

My grandma was nice enough to make me the green squares I used, and my mom was nice enough to help me tie it all together. I was really happy to make it, and I thought it was really nice that three generations were able to work on it together. It makes the gift that much more special. At least to me. :)

Let me know what you think!
I ironed on patches in the corner squares. Bret and Sarah decorated Olivia's room with a jungle theme, so I wanted it to sort of match.
I had so much fun making this gift. It took me forever to figure out how to change the settings on my printer to make the pictures print in reverse on the transfer paper. But now I know. :)

In the end it turned out cute, and I am so excited for them!
