    I found out yesterday that a co-worker's little girl was having surgery. After a trip to JoAnn's after work to get a "cheater quilt" and fabric, I put this together last night. Her surgery went fine and they let her come home last night too. Took this to work today so her dad can deliver it to her this afternoon.
    I added another border to the pre-made top to make it a bit larger and to add something to all the pink. Soft flannels, and fuzzys and satin for textures. Nice soft flannel on the back. And her favorite color happens to be pink-of course! She is 4! Didn't have to guess on that one.

    How pretty! I am amazed that you just "threw" this together so fast. Good job and I know she will love it, I know I would and I am a big girl! LOL

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. :!:
    Since it was made for a co-worker's daughter:
    Her dad reported in that the little girl loves it and took it right away and snuggled in. (All that flannel-and it has been so cold!)

    He also commented that it matches her bedroom and bed-guess it was a happy accident! :lol: ( I have not met the little girl. )

    He also said the mom was in awe. He had to convince her that I made it. (I find that hard to believe-it was a quick job and I almost didn't give it to them because there is a place on the binding that didn't line up like I wanted it to. I am my own worst critic!) I guess it is a good thing I gave it to her anyway. She loves it in spite of its flaws!! :lol: :lol:

    Your comments inspired me to keep on working on a baby quilt for someone. It's my second try at something nice but I'm just not feeling like it's worth giving away. You have inspired me to finish it and go ahead and give it to the baby. RIGHT!!! I am my own worst critic too.Thanks
