    How sweet is that quilt?! Beautiful work for a beautiful baby.

    (My two oldest boys were 29-weekers... despite challenging beginnings early on, they are now healthy, vibrant, intelligent and charming young men of 17 and 19!)

    I love it! The colors and fabric are perfect for a baby girl. Are the angels embroidered on an em or printed panels? This is one I'd love to copy but not sure if I could pull it off! They're going to love it!

    The angels are an applique embroidery design by JuJu and the quilt measures 60" x 60". Thank you all for your nice comments.
    The baby girl is doing great: she war born january 9th and she does not need any more help for breathing and thanks to the intensive care and a stomach tube she is gaining weight.

    A baby that preemie can be such a strain for the new young parents -- been there, done that, 4 times, many years ago. Thank God our medical care of these preemies has improved so much. Your darling quilt will bless them all and even the hospital nursery if they are allowed to take it there. Very sweet!

    Very nice. I can tell it's a disappearing 9 patch, correct. I am planning on doing the same thing for my newest grand baby due in May. Can you tell me how big you cut your squares? I haven't done one of these yet and am anxious to try it. Did you use a pattern or make up your own? Any input you can give would be a great help. I am new to quilting and have only made 4 so far.

    Dear Sandy

    yes, it is a disappearing 9 patch and sewing a nine patch and cutting it in four is the whole pattern. I started with strips of 4". Two times one strip of bright fabric with two darker on the side and one time dark fabric in the middle and the brighter ones on the side (half the lengh as you only need one per nine patch). Sewing strips is much easier. If you are done simply cut them in whatever you started out - in my case 4". This way the nine patch blocks are done in no time.
    If you want to add alternating blocks just cut them after you are finished with the disappearing nine patches. So the size of the blocks wont matter much as long as they are all the same. I think big prints or panels are great for inserting in this quilt.
    Go ahead and have fun! It is such a simple pattern and the outcome looks so great. I just pulled mine out of the dryer and it is so soft and cuddly - I love it!
