    Many Firsts in this Quilt for my Great Nephew

    Firsts: Used a pre-cut: a jelly roll
    first stars
    first pinwheels (see back)
    first FMQing
    The pattern is Stars and Strips from Atkinson Designs. It's large for a baby quilt: 46 x 56, but he can drag it around for a long time. This is a very easy pattern, no points to match!

    I put it in the mail yesterday, with more than a little separation anxiety!

    Now, bear with me, cause I haven't posted a picture in a long time, since the new website software was installed.

    The first is of the pieced top before the borders

    Ok, picture size is pretty small; I resized it per Patrice's instructions, but it's from my cell phone, so.....

    Next is the finished quilt front

    and the label

    I forgot to take a close-up of the FMQ, it's not the greatest, but from a galloping horse...
    And, no more quilt pictures with my cell phone.

    I love the border. So much better than a plain one. That's all I do is plain borders - I may need to step out of my comfort zone on the next one! Love your colors throughout also.

    Awesome job! At least the baby won't outgrow it quickly.

    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone....NOT your housework!

    Oh, that's a terrific quilt! It's a nice boy-ish design and the fabrics you picked out fit perfectly. He is sure to treasure it.

    What a great quilt, and I wasn't on a galloping horse!
