    This is the quilt I'm working on for my soon to be born daughter Rylynn. I know it's big, but I wanted her to be able to use it for longer than just when she is a little girl. This is my first quilt so it's not perfect! I don't think the colors are coming through correctly either....:(

    it's not as green as it looks...

    Thank you :) I have 6 appliques that are going to be on the yellow and pink plaid squares but I have to send my mom to the store for some.... uh.... steam to seam? I think that's what it's called...

    I really am learning as I go :)

    You did a great job mireelmar! What kind of appliques are you going to put on it? (I use Steam-a-Seam too!) She's going to enjoy it for a long time! :D

    I got these really cute "fab-liques" as they call them at Joanns. They are sooooo soft and adorable. I don't have the patience just yet to try and make my own appliques :) The quilt I was given by my grandmother when I was a baby has hand made appliques on it, and I contemplated it, tried it, and after many choice curse words and a tear fest, I gave up. There are just some things that shouldn't be done while pregnant, hah.

    I have a pig (my favorite animal) elephant, giraffe, butterly, sheep, and a lion :) maybe I should take pictures of them too...?

    How do you like the steam-a-seam? Is it easy to use?
