Once upon a time there was a little baby who was given a special receiving blanket made of flannel with a wonderful bug print. As this little girl grew, she shared her little blanket with others. There were days when she missed her little blanket, but she was happy that she could share with someone else. One day her fairy godmother heard that the little girl was still missing her little bug blanket. With the waive of her magic wand, the fairy godmother was able to transform some scraps into a special quilt for the little girl. There were even little ladybugs & butterflies appliqued to the quilt so that the little girl would always be surrounded by beautiful little bugs. That is how "Tristen's Garden" came to be. As the little girl snuggles with the quilt, her fairy godmother hopes she feels surrounded by love & prayers. Just a note about the machine quilted pattern - the fairy godmother watched the little bugs in her own flower garden and decided to freemotion stitch a "bug's flight" pattern. The little bugs flit here & there, sometimes quickly turning to go to another flower & sometimes flying in a smooth arc to check out the rest of the flowers.
