Angels-a-plenty

I am going through another 'too busy for sewing' phase & am suitably out of sorts! So I will have to dig something up out of the archives to show you today.I made this little cot quilt about twelve months ago as a 'welcome to the world gift' for a newborn niece. Sorry, the photos are not great - if you click on them, hopefully you'll see more detail. It is Sweet Dreams Angel Quilt by Bareroots.It was fun to make as each panel has a different stitchery on it, with each second one being an angel of some sort. Very sweet for a little girl. The blocks were supposed to be needle turn applique, but I resorted to machine blanket stitch for a more speedy result. I needed to get it to my niece before her 21st birthday! The stitchery background is a soft beige checked sandcastle - wonderfully soft to stitch, but tricky to transfer the design as the fabric is so thick. And my favourite block? The cow jumping over the moon:

  18. Ok, I knon it's been awhile since you posted this one but I love this quilt and my brothers asked me to make it for a very good friend of his. . . The problem is I can't get Bareroots to reply to my ordered other than its being processed since 4/8. They don't reply to my email or answer their phone. Do you have any idea where I might be able to buy the pattern?

    Thanks for your help,
