    This one has been in progress for oh maybe 2 years cuz the kid it's for will be or just turned a year old. It was too big to quilt on my machine so I did it by hand. I was inspired by a quilt made by Nancy Halvorsen in her Art to Heart Book called Winsome Baby. I saw the book in my lqs but didn't buy it. I made this one from memory and altered it. I obviously used different dimensions, added circle applique and made it more "wonky" then Nancy's perfect rectangles. I hand drew the name using freezer paper for my stencils and then appliqued it onto the center block. So yeah on to washing it to see if it'll hold up!!!

    I didn't see the original but I'm betting I'd like your version better. I love this design. You did a fantastic job. I'm bookmarking this thread so I can use your ideas myself.
