    I started this back in Jan. Soon after piecing and deciding that I wanted applique other than what Modabakeshop.com had in the pattern, it started to go bad. My sewing machine quit working. Embroidery machine had to be taken to the shop. After getting it back I tried again with a larger applique to cover the mistake. And again my machine and the operator made a booboo. So this little booger sat in the closet for a few months. While cleaning I found it and decided to try and fix it. I had to cut out a section about 6" wide where the applique is now. If you look close you can see my seam. With all the trouble I opted for raw edge applique. Glad its finished, finally! Thanks for looking.

    love it! I've always been a fan of argyle and i love your color choices. The mid-bottom applique is a nice touch.

    So cute! I am bookmarking this one.

    I really had a puzzle over your title, though. What in the world is an argyle baby quilt, I was thinkin'?

    Now I know, and I love it!

    Did i spell it wrong? Thats what my mom calls that pattern. Maybe I should call it crisscross? It reminds me of socks from the early 80's

    I didn't see any seams until you pointed them out. People look at things as a whole (unless they are biddywitches) and don't pay any attention to anything but the overall beauty.

    Some one will love and appreciate this wonderful quilt.

    No, no, you did not spell it wrong -- I was anticipating a quilt made of argyle socks!
