    Bold for a baby - but she'll grow!

    Pattern: Warm Wishes. I made it square (44" square) by making it 7 blocks X 7 blocks instead of the 7X9 it called for. That just seemed to big for what I wanted. Borders weren't called for, but added them.

    Backing: Fleece from Wal-mart.

    Binding: storebought satin blanket binding

    There's no batting in it. My grandsons call these "cozy" quilts.

    I'm taking it to a baby shower and hope there's not just a bit of silence when it's opened! Certainly not pastel or pink! I just know my grandsons at 4 and 5 still use the bolder larger quilts they were given and not the smaller or "cuter" ones.

    The butterfly fabric was from a sale shelf on a shop hop. The others were all walmart. The green bled terribly. I hope I got it all out, but soaked it in hot water 4 times - rinsing each time until it ran clear. Then added vinegar in the last soaking. I'll give a box of Color Catchers with it.

    So many quilts, so little time.

    Babies love bright and bold! It's us who like the softer, sweeter colors - probably because we think of babies as soft and sweet.

    Who wouldn't love such a beautiful quilt....a crazy person, maybe. I never had a problem with greens bleeding before. I'll have to watch for that. Love the quilt and the pattern.

    It's beautiful!!! I'd have loved something like that, when my DD was born!

    Am thinking that'd be perfect for my 9.5 yo DGD, as well! Just may have to copy your idea!
