    Hi Izy,
    This next one will be my third quilt, great to have so many friends with babies so I can hone my skills. This next one is for a baby boy on his first birthday. I am doing rail fence pattern, using bright mixed childrens fabrics - I have Pooh, Finding Nemo, and other bold, fun colours. It may end up being rather loud and busy, but I am trying to try new things, like maybe a pieced border and **GULP** - hand stitching the binding!! :!: :shock:

    Good on you Mary...you can do it, one small step at a time, I found myself playing with 1.5" squares last week - now I am deeply engrossed in a scrappy quilt!! I have made about 150 X 3" (16 patches / each 3/4" finished) :shock:

    It has given me great practice at butting up/interlocking all those junctions!!! :lol:

    I look forward to seeing your next quilt Mary :D

    PrettyKitty:
    The picture of Gil and Stu opening their quilt is priceless. They look absolutely delighted with it. Great job and doesn't it make your heart feel good that they love it and know you made it with love in every stitch.

    The baby is adorable but then I've never seen a baby anything that wasn't! Nice happy family.

    Your kitties have more personality than most people one meets in their lifetime. Wow! Kitchen almost comes to life on the "puter" screen. Thanks for sharing.
