    First baby quilt

    I really enjoyed making this baby quilt. It really looks like puzzle pieces. This is the first quilt which I completed with a proper binding as well. I machine sewed the binding to the front and hand stitched it to the back as most of you on the board seem to do. (I have only been quilting for one year.) The pattern is a jigsaw puzzle pattern from About.com and the small quilt measures 47" X 52".
    The front (puzzle pieces) I simply quilted with stitch in the ditch around each puzzle piece. (All I can do at this point)
    The quilt is for the soon to be born baby-boy of my daughter's friends. Mom to-be is a music teacher (who played soccer) and dad to-be is a science teacher and high school soccer coach.
    Thanks for looking and have a great day.
