    I made this pattern 30 years ago for my niece when she was born. I just finished making it for her daughter (due in March). What a trip down memory lane!

    Very nicely done. It brought back memories, as I made it 33 yrs. ago for a friend's daughter - made me smile to see it again. Carole

    I made it too- about 30+ years ago- I believe it was a Vogue pattern. I still have the Polaroid shot of the baby on the quilt- it was for the neice of a then boyfriend. I think I'm going down memory lane!!!!

    Such a sweet thing to do! I'm sure it will be cherished for many years to come.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
