    Finished Nursery Rhyme quilt!

    I used pink flannel for the backing and pink variegated thread. The thread doesn't show up very well in the picture. The binding is rainbow color. Most of it Is cut off in my picture. I am not not the best photographer. Now I am off to find a nursery rhyme story book. I will give this to her at her baby shower.

    It is simply gorgeous, and at the baby shower everyone will be wanting to see it. A very sweet baby girl quilt.

    Amazon has several Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme books on their site. I'm sure you won't have any problem finding one.

    You made an absolutely adorable baby quilt. I am sure this is going to be handled with care and passed down thru many generation in your family.

    That quilt is soooo precious! I'm sure it will be treasured for years to come!! There is a lot of work in it (changing thread colors is really time consuming) : )

    wow. that is some quilt, it is hard to know where to look first. I hope the new mommy will not wash it to death, and keep it nice to pass on for generations to come.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
