I just put the final stitches in this quilt and I couldn't be happier! I absolutely love how it turned out. I needed to have it finished for tomorrow for the baby shower and I did it! The Mommy-to-be is the daughter of my friend Louise who passed away a couple years ago. I miss my friend dearly and I know she would have loved to have been able to spend time here with her grandchildren.
I know that this design doesn't really look like a 'baby' quilt and I didn't really want it to. I made it with the hopes that the baby will get many years of use well past the baby stage. It finished at approx. 49" square and I quilted it with brown thread and used a star and loop pantograph.
