    My Favorite Block baby quilt

    Earlier this year I joined an online quilt along called My Favorite Block at www.persimondreams.com. Every other week two blocks were posted by two different quilter/bloggers. I really looked forward to each new block. Directions were given for six inch and twelve inch blocks. These are all six inch, I made another set in different colors in both twelve and six inch sizes, still working on that one. The other picture is of the back, it shows the quilting much better than the front. This quilt will go to a co-worker whose baby girl is due in September. I'm so happy to have it finished and ready to gift when the time comes.

    Adorable. I like that border fabric and the sashing fabric. Ties all the blocks in nicely. Good job. Wonderful gift.

    The quilting is gorgeous, and I'm sure your coworker will be thrilled.

    Your quilt is adorable. Love sampler quilts and love the bright colors that you used. That owl block is so cute too. She will love it. You must really like her because I know how much work you put into this sampler quilt.

    It's such a bright and cheerful quilt! I know the mom and baby girl will treasure it.

    Really really cute. I've backed off from using stripes, plaids, etc. in borders because I hate it when it doesn't match. Never thought to put cornerstones (? - not sure if that is the right term) - but it looks awesome!! Thanks for sharing!

    Happy quilt! Your co-worker is very lucky! Good job!
    I love to encourage people to feel good about themselves. You are beautiful to God and you are beautiful to me. You were put here for a purpose and you never know how much you have touched someone elses life.
