    Ditto. This is an adorable quilt! And better late than never, right? I didn't used to be a procrastinator but have gotten really bad as of late. And it makes me sooooooooooooo mad at myself! I was just thinking about this earlier this afternoon. I guess I just have so much to do that I feel overwhelmed. And then stuck...

    I think your quilt is darling. I bet the new mother did too. I think we all procrastinate or find other time wasters. I should be cleaning cupboards and drawers!

    Cute! I like the placement of the "picture" squares.

    what a darling quilt. and done in time, too. So you get extra points that can be traded in for more fabric! (that's what I do, though I rarely confide this truth to my DH)

    Not fun to work under pressure but you did end up with a cute quilt. Your design really highlights that cute fabric.

    Check with the mom to see if she will use them. My daughter just threw them out, they came with the store bought set thankfully.

I like the quilt, i just wasnt thrilled with the quilting. They loved it and thats what counts. I really dont like working under that much pressure, but i seem to make a habit of it.
    I was disappointed with the quilting on mine too - not something to do to a deadline. But I gave my friend the quilt yesterday, and she and her partner were thrilled. They certainly weren't examining the stitches!
