    3rd Time's a Charm!

    Here is the final quilt I made in hopes of finding just the right theme for a young lady at work who is expecting. I ended up buying a strip pack for this one and followed MSQC tutorial on the Fence Rail Star. I decided to show her all three and let her choose and this is the one she took. She liked the bright colors.

    Stick-to-it-ness wins out every time. I'd have chosen the bright one, too.
    P.S. I love this pattern, have made a bunch of scrappy with white or yellow stars, for charity.
    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    I like the bright colors, too! Great quilt.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    So very cute and bright. I love that green. I don't normally like green but something about that sort of limey color I adore!

    This is a real winner. Mom loves the bright colors and so will the new baby. Sometimes it just takes more than one try to come up with something that really sings to your heart. But, I know others with like your first and second quilts. They were nice-just not what you had envisioned.

    Like that pattern from MSQ. I have used it three times (it's a charm, don't you know) for baby quilts. Mine were all 1930 reproduction that is my compromise between "baby fabric" and other interesting fabrics I have in my stash that may not please the parents. You made some fun fabric choices.

    Looks like a perfect quilt for a baby. Nice bright colors and how nice of you to let her pick which quilt she wanted and now you know she will really like it for her new blessing.
