Default 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!

Who needs a pattern when you can create something as cute as that!

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!
