    I designed and made this quilt for a girlfriend of mine. She actually went into labor about an hour after I dropped the finished quilt off at her house. Her daughter was born shortly after.

    The back is that wonderful cuddle fabric that is SOOOO soft! I quilted duckies in each of the squares. I ended up using a cookie cutter and tracing around it for the template. After this one, I signed up to take a machine quilting class because I didn't do as good a job as I would have liked.

    I only had the top done at her baby shower, so I took it with me to purchase the back fabric and I left it at my sister's house... three hours away. By the time I got the top, she was PAST her due date. I never quilted so fast.
