    Just finished ... DNA? ... post-hole-digger ... baby quilt

    I think this arrangement of HST is usually called a DNA quilt, but in my mind, these are post-hole-diggers, like we used to have attached to our farm tractor ! I'm planning to give this to my nephew and his wife as a baby quilt (their first.)

    The pastels were from a pack of 5x10 blocks that I got as a Christmas gift. The back is flannel. I had lots of fun quilting this one!

    Love, love, love the quilting! (if I was allowed to shout I would ). It really does a nice job of emphasizing the piecing as well as adding a secondary design and loads of interest.

    Post hole digger--you are so right! I love this pattern--made one for a preteen girl and it sure was fun to design. I love the colors and fabrics. It'll "grow with" the baby very well. And your quilting is superb! What a lot of work you put into it--so much fun to see the solid backs of quilts like this.

    Never seen this pattern and I really like it.
    Especially like your colors and how you quilted it to draw your eye to parts of the pattern.
    Like how the "inside" of the DNA is quilted differently, one color from the others.
    NICE work!

    Love the quilt and the quilting is fabulous! Have to say that I was giggling about the title and wondering "what the heck?" until I opened it!
