    That's fantastic! Love the colors, love the polka dots, love the print! BQ patterns are wonderful, aren't they? I used one for a t-shirt quilt.
    Hmmmm. Quilt or tie? I like tied baby quilts! Is your batting rated for enough space between tacks? Maybe a little SITD along with the tying?

    That is so sweet. What is a BQ3 pattern? Does BQ stand for baby quilt?

    Adorable, I can just see a baby sitting on it looking at all the items and bright colors. Then later folded up at the end of the bed. Pretty neat work I enjoyed seeing it.

    Didn't think about both....I like this idea!! Batting is rated for 2-4"apart for quilting distance.

    Lovely job. I think quilting would pop it more.

    Love the fabric and pattern - very pretty.
    PS: Just checked out the BQ3 pattern and I would never have known how pretty it could be if I hadn't looked at yours.

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Nice job. I am almost always in favor of quilting because it is more durable. (and less likely to be undone by baby fingers)

    Funny thing is, when I found the fabric, this is the pattern I could "see" it in...and I've never used the pattern before, just admired it!

    Love the beautiful colors in your quilt and the pattern works beautifully! I wouldn't tie a baby quilt!
