    Lightbulb Emergency Baby Quilt

    This was made from UFO blocks and scraps, because the shower is today and I put it off too late to shop. Not great, but not bad either!

    Cute. Is this your own design? Know that it will keep the baby warm. BrendaK

    That is a very pretty quilt. Those UFO's come in handy sometimes.

    Very nice, it looks like fish to me too.

    I have lots of orphan blocks, one day I may start sewing them together.

    I would say fish also. They look like they are swimming from light water into dark. Very effective.

    My daughter sent me a bunch of these fish squares to sew together. I didn't think some of the backgrounds blended as well as they should, so I made new ones with several left over. I don't know the name of the pattern, but it is pretty easy to make as long as you get the seam allowance right on the fins.

    We quilters are certainly a resourceful bunch.
