Baby Quilt - Adding Embroidered Applique

Just a quick quilt update.  I am working on the baby quilt for my friend Darla who is having a baby boy soon.  Fortunately she doesn't read my blog so it is safe to post pictures.   Yesterday I added the machine embroidered applique to the quilt.   I just wanted some fun designs to add interest for the baby as he gets old enough to notice.  So I used the dog, cat, circle and star cutting dies with my AccuQuilt GO! cutter.  I also used embroidery files that I got from Marjorie at B-Quilts Shop.

The star at the bottom is done with variegated thread so the white that you see is not a mistake.  It just looks a bit odd in the photo.
Now I need to add the yellow sashing and put the back together so I can get this baby quilted!

Be sure to come back tomorrow.  I will be reviewing Jennifer Chiaverini's book, The Giving Quilt which has a release date of October 30th.
The following day is my turn on The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips blog tour so of course you will want to be here for that one too!
See you soon.
