    My boss got her first grandchild last night-a girl! I made this QAYG quilt to give her. The parents wanted to be surprised so I didn't know if it was a boy or girl so I made it for either. I would have liked to put yo-yo's or buttons where the corners meet but can't for a baby. Oh well, maybe when she is older

    The front is flannel.

    The back is nice, soft fleece.

    This could do boy or girl. I hope they appreciate how lucky they are to have such a quilt

    How soft and snuggly - this is a "blankie" to treasure.

    The softness will be great for the baby and the colors you chose are beautiful! What a wonderful keepsake. :-)

    I didn't really use a pattern. I just found a circle the size I wanted ( an aluminum tray) traced around and sewed on the circle. Cut it out, put a little slit close to the edge to turn it. Then made a square piece of cardboard that fit the inside. Sewed them together in a row (flannel on the outside for the top) then sewed the rows together. I wanted to leave the ends scallopped but didn't plan ahead. I used permanent marker to draw the squares! Next time I'll plan ahead.
