Isabella's Blissful Confection Quilt

Once upon a time, a little sister received a quilt, after her arrival, so fresh from the arms of God. But her new big sister really liked that special quilt. Momma and Daddy asked if somehow I could make one for Big Sister and here is is: Isabella's Blissful Confection Toddler Quilt. 

This quilt was different, with some specially placed orange silky ribbon for some comfort along one whole side of the quilt - I call them design elements. Sounds fancy huh?

Isabealla's parents asked for the same pattern (Blissful Confection) as their youngest daughter, Zoe, but momma chose different colorful material and I used bigger blocks, which made it go much faster.  My husband helped lay the quilt top out.  Turns out he's a whiz at it!  Says it's a lot like putting a puzzle together, but he's way to logical for me.  I'm more whimsical and laid back about it, though it is not my favorite part of quilt making.
