Mary Engelbreit Quilt

A friend of mine is having a baby and is a big Mary Engelbriet fan.  Of course I got the idea to make her a baby quilt with Mary’s fabrics and some blocks of embroidered quotes from Mary’s artwork.  Until I have the design worked out, here are some quotes I’ve found for it.  Or I could just get this book (Artful Words: Mary Engelbreit and the Illustrated Quote)!

Do Good…

Happiness…

Home is…

Sweetie Pie

Bloom where…

Every calling…

Heal, Live, Dream

She who laughs, lasts

Queen of hearts

Where children are…

Alive…

Like what you do…

A happy family…

The world to me…

Make the days count…
