    I made this baby quilt for my soon-to-be-born great nephew in SC. The nursery colors are orange and white, (Texas Longhorn theme) but I needed more colors than that to work with. I used a florescent orange dotted minkee for the back and wrap round binding. I quilted around the center squares and tied at the corners with orange yarn. It's large...about 48 x 48. It's more like a comforter... or a fluffy play place for the floor. I will deliver the quilt while I am in the Carolinas'.
    Hope the pic shows up.

    Great quilt, love the colors. I also like minkee for backing on baby quilts, it's so soft and washes great.

    It looks so soft and cuddley. The blue really works well with the orange. Good job on the quilt and posting your pictures! :thumbup:
