    My niece is turning three in october. I have been meaning to send her a quilt since she has been born. Am I behind a little?? Ha ha ha ...

    In my defence, I sent her tons of cute handmade baby clothes.
    What do you all think? It is ready to be quilted. I just have to go and buy some batting. It is going on sale at a local fabric store the sevententh, so I think I will get it then.

    All children's prints...

    I just love your quilt, and the prints.
    Are they Aunt Grace, or 1930's repos?

    It's very sweet looking and looks like it would be so nice to snuggle under/

    Hey Red

    Little Cherish will fall in love with that quilt when she feasts her eyes on it. Are the centre blocks made from Charms - just wondering as I have 2 packs of 30's repro's that I want to use to make a quilt for my 1st GC Harry who's due next month.

    I love the fabrics on this quilt. I'm sure she will love her new quilt from her talented aunt. :)

    Well, to tell the truth girls, this fabric was gifted to me by my neighbor. She started a class and cut out some of the squares to be set. Then she hated the class and never finished it. Not even a block. There was no edges to tell what the manufactorer's name is.

    I had to recut all of the blocks, and it was tedious. And then I hated the original pattern blocks for a child's quilt. So, I almost put it away too. I made myself think about what it was I didn't like about it. I realized the blocks were too fussy for a child's quilt and scaled it down to this. Now I do like it, and it got finished. Well so far. The original blocks were a chinese lantern.

    I am thinking these were fat quarters to begin with. By the scraps that are left. I had the yardage for the colored borders on hand. All the rest was in the package kitty gave me.

    By the way Sharon ... It is going to Arizonia. LOL
