|Cupcakes for a cupcake|
From the moment she was born, Lydia was "Cupcake" to her Mom and Dad, although Dominick would have called her "Watermelon" because he is "Pumpkin." I dug out this pattern from the 2012 June/July issue of McCall's Quick Quilts for the Cake & Ice Cream pattern.

This is Lydia's first birthday quilt. The pattern is Chase Manhattan - yes, like the bank logo - in 30's and 40's fabrics. This quilt is actually a leftover from a much larger version for my California daughter, but for some reason I don't have that picture. Because I spent my summer recuperating from surgery, I decided to hand-quilt this confection. I spent many hours on my deck enjoying the peace and quiet, listening to the birds and squirrels, and quilting away. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed hand quilting and hope to do more soon.
