    I ordered this to make two baby quilts, one for my grandson and one for the lady across the street who just had a boy too. It is just darling and so what if there is pink in it!

    I have a yard of each and I think that will be enough to make two small quilts. Just going to do a D9P with the character print squares in the 4 corners that don't get cut and mix up the colors.

    I might have them done by the END of the weekend. :lol: I have all the pieces cut out for both quilts and the first one has the first and second squares sewed together on all the nine patch rows. I have some high quality muslin that I decided not to use for the backing on a queen sized so I'm ready to go.

    I know what you mean about working with dark fabrics. The last 3 have been darker colors and I wanted something bright. I think the next one will be the Moda Aviary collection that is light pastels.

    I should have this top done tonight. The orange is not QUITE as neon as it looks in the pictures but it is awfully bright. I thought it was more yellow when I ordered it online but, it still matches that color in the main fabric.

    Love it and so will the babies. Babies love bright colors, it will probably become their favorite thing to sleep with. Love the way you did the squares, just perfect. Please do not forget to post the pictures when you are done.
    Did you have enough for both quilts?

    Great baby quilt fabric, Pam. I've been wondering - you don't look old enough in your avatar picture to have grandchildren!

    Yes, I do like working with the bright colors for a change. I really do like the muted ones I usually pick but, a change is nice.

    Yes, I have enough for two of them. All the pieces are cut out and I divided it all in half.

    I have 3 grandchildren, a girl 9 and two boys, ages 1 1/2 and not even 2 months old. I started young, I was only 36 when my oldest daughter turned 18 and she's 27 now (so that makes me 45). I have a daughter that's 26 and a son 23.
