    No pattern - finished!

    I posted a picture of fabrics and a half-baked idea for a baby quilt and thanks to all who had suggestions. This is also the quilt that sent me outside to mow the lawn when my 6" 9-patches turned out to be 3". Funny thing about "mistakes", that mistake turned out to be the saving block as my roommate and I tried every layout we could think of to make this quilt work. I have a large pile of 6" 9-patches that will probably get put on the back, but it's done, the baby is 3 months old, and the mother is in love with the quilt. I will never again start a quilt without a pattern!

    Lemonade from lemons. I'm glad you didn't give up. It is beautiful. I'm so glad the mom was in love with it. I love the non traditional, vintage feel to your baby quilt. Awesome job!

    Doesn't look like you need a pattern--I think it looks great! And I can definitely see why the mom was in love with it!

    All I can say, is sometimes those 'no pattern' ideas turn out great and this one did. I think you should be proud of it. Great design!

    Love it, but I can see where it might cause a headache or two.

    this is a really adorable quilt. I disagree with your assessment of never again making a quilt without a pattern--you did great so why stop now?

    This is a wonderful quilt.
    You should probably never bother with a pattern.
