    Default Added smiles and faces, thanks to my quilting buddies for their help.

    A while back I asked for you opinions regarding a baby quilt I was making. I wanted to know if I should add faces to the animals or if I should just leave them as is. You all had some great suggestions and I read them all and tried a few and this is the one that worked the best to outline the eyes and mouths so it would show up on the back. Much Mahalo to all it looks so much better now. What do you think?

    Aloha Sandy, the back came out very cute with your embroidery! Great job!! Now your DGD will be happy that the animals on the back have eyes and smiles.

    Oh, Sandy - who'd a thunk it? What a difference the eyes make. Right on. I love it - 'specially the blue elephant.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Have you guys noticed we have a "like" button? I just noticed it. As I said, Sandy, "Thumbs Up!!!" That is so cute. Very clever to enhance the features on the back!
