    This is very pretty. Did you stitch it all on machine? The baby quilt I'm working on has been "laying in wait" can't seem to finish it, gotta a little bored i suppose. Yours is sooo nice, lucky baby!!!

    Catherine, this quilt was made for my grand son .
    I made it then took that blue pen that is washable (you can buy at Walmart)and a long ruler and marked a 2 inch grid . Then I put it with the batting and backing and pin,pin,pin all over. Some times I even come back and do long basting stitches up and down the quilt then I can remove the pins ( they get in the way when you are quilting ) . I did machine quilted this one only b/c I did not have much time . The baby came 7 weeks eary and I was working on a quilt for a GIRL and then we got a BOY instead . DR. made a big mistake 4 OS and always said a girl . But we a so happy with our little Dakota we would not trade him for a girl!!

    Okay , and when you bring it to the machine you can start in one corner and work youself down one side then work on the other side starting in the center again. I hope this make sence to you.

    It's perfect for a precious little boy. I can imagine him on his tummy...looking at and reaching for all the blocks.

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