Just finished this tumbling blocks for a baby quilt for a friend's shower this past weekend. Started it last Saturday, finished it this Friday night. Since I am such a batik ho, I had plenty in my stash to do the quilt, found it fairly satisfying. Made a trip to the store for background and backing. Due to pocketbook constraints, had to quilt it myself, but didn't do too badly.
I thought it fairly gender-neutral, and had a bit of a fright when picking out the background and the store clerk said, "well, obviously it's for a boy!" No one else agreed with her, so I blew off her comment.
Had a little discussion about the label in the "main" section of the forum and as the pictures show I made a label, but will not finish it until the baby is born. Didn't follow the advice of one of my smart azzed friends who said to just toss a sharpie in with the label and call it good. Uh, huh....
pieced, not quilted
label with the postit notes I attached for the mom-to-be
Absolutely beautiful!!! A mini-masterpiece.
super quilt.... I have that pattern... will definitely try it... pleased to see those lovely colours and the way you sorted the colours out.... well done !!!
Very nice. I see gender neutral & don't worry about anyone's comments. Love the colors.
Wow - that is beautiful! And your quilting is great, really lets the geometry of the pattern stand out! :-D
Where did you find the pattern???

Just stunning!!! On my list of TTD.
Thank you for the source info. Will try to find it through the library. Lots of other quilting videos on the youtube link. Whew - so many designs that appeal, so little time!
Your quilt is just beautiful and the border & background were a wonderful choice, too. It's said that babies like intense colors so that should be one happy baby! Lucky one, too.
That's pretty! I've never seen that pattern done in batiks, I like it!
