    I don't think the quilting will show up because of the veining in the fabric, there are several large butterflies and the rest in or at least near the ditch! lol I dyed the backing in a gradation from pink to purple and am very pleased with the results, however...... that gal who did the measuring :oops: cut the strips exactly the size of the quilt, no seam allowances or room for error :cry: hence the border on the back.
    The bag is a pattern I wanted to try and a baby shower came up at just the right time!
    The quilt is for my first granddaughter who will be 13 next month.

    did you use a pattern for the diaper bag. my son and DIL are going to have a baby in Nov and my son wants a manly diaper bag, thought it would be easier to make than buy. I love all your work.

    Great colors! You really outdid yourself. i love hand dyed fabric, and log cabins are always a favorite.
