    I peiced the inner portion of the quilt in October....but the borders have been sitting there for 2.5 weeks waiting to be put on :roll: --I kind of procrastinate on borders..it is a sickness :shock:

    I made a mistake on one of the borders it is only about 14 inches..I am going to keep it there....I call these design opportunities and besides if the AMISH can do it so can i...I put the dresses on upside down.... :oops: again pictures with camera phone--Now that I found it ( camera) and it has batteries it is upstairs and i am lazy..lol 8)

    I bought these fabrics when my DD was 5 months old and knew they were for her..just hadn't made anything with them..and they are perfect for her..in fact this is for christmas and I told her I was making this quilt for the shop..she keeps telling me how she just loves this quilt--she is 6...maybe she is on to me?? She loves pink/green and dress up--so the yellow dress fabric is just darling and all the soft colors will go well in her room.

    Practice doodling, exactly! Grab some scrap paper and pencil and start drawing lines ... Pam Clark series of quilting patterns are very nice ... as far as the dresses, they are not upside down! They are so baby can lay under the quilt and look at them rightside up! :wink: What a nice mommy - - always looking at the world through child eyes.

    OMak ....thanks for the new angle of looking at things! You know we are always harder on ourselves than anyone else ever is..I hardly think she will notice..nor care..she will just be happy I made her something...she is like that. :D

    Well, if DD points out something that needs changed on her gift?
    It is time to teach her how to make her own! LOL

    I like it and Omak beat me to it, but upside down is only through a perspective. Whats upside down to you is right side up to another! :D

    Charisma - that is wonderful! It's going to your baby, and she's going to love it, and that's just the icing on the cake. I'm glad to hear your little one loves your work. My DD and DS are the same way and it feels really good to know they appreciate your efforts!! I hope it's her favorite Christmas prezzie!!
