    Wow, I like yours better than the one on the cover of the book. And I didn't notice before, but after several people mentioned it - you did pick a great fabric for the backing.

    Gorgeous!

    As for showers sometimes the people giving it do not know who should be invited. Maybe innocently ask if a shower is planned and were it will be.

    Our church gave a shower for my new DIL to be and they did not invite everyone. It was just an over sight and I know they would if they had realized. Like one of the families not invited was the mother and sisters of the best man. this fmaily goes to our church and is best friends with us for over 20 years. It was odd!

    Love this for a baby, the backing is great! About the shower, perhaps just call her and ask, let her know her cousin mentioned a shower, and you hadn't received an invitation and didn't know if it was lost in the mail or perhaps it was for a specific group such as coworkers. It is possible you are invited but the invite was lost.

    What a perfect backing. Love the circle pattern repeat. The circles on the backing accentuate the circle pattern on the front. Just perfect!!! What a talented husband you have and how nice that he participates with your quilting projects.

    Yeah, I've found that, too, especially with girls who have large families in the area.

    Very very nice. Great idea to use the circles on the back when you did such a wonderful job making the circles on the front. Now that's cooperation.

    Lucky baby and Mom, I'm sue if you weren't invited, it was just an oversite, and they will wonder why you aren't there

    It is a lovely quilt and I agree, you should call her and let her know you've made a quilt that you'd like to get to her.

    You could always call your niece and tell her you finished the quilt for her baby, when would she like you to bring it by? Then she can say "oh! weren't you invited to the shower???" and let you know, or she'll let you know some other time. Perhaps it's just a friend's thing. Or she didn't want a shower but someone else insisted, so she kept the list down. One of the gals I work with is having a baby and we forcefully had a shower at work yesterday even though she didn't want one :D
