    Wanted to wait till we knew gender to decide whether or not to use the pink . . . Baby due mid-April! I challenged myself to try free motion outline quilting in the center fabric.

    That is so cute and you did a great job quilting. Is the checkerboard border pieced?

    Yes, it's pieced. I was pleased to have found the dotted fabrics that matched so nicely. Not the same line of fabrics. I also liked the colors in the backing fabric but was a bit anxioux about using a stripe. It's not perfectly square, but I don't expect to be showing it to the "quilting police".

    Thank you for the nice comments. Means a lot coming from this group!

    How adorable!!! My niece is having a baby around April 26th we'll have to keep tabs...ours is going to be a boy!

    It would have been the first grandchild for my parents but they both passed away early (my dad in '89 at 53 and my mom last year at 71). So since they're not here and I don't have my own kids yet (that clock is ticking too) I have a feeling he's going to be a very spoiled boy and I'll have nothing to do with it ;)
