    Wow... it took me a lot long to piece this quilt then I thought it would, I had lots of interruptions. My sister wanted me to make all the stuff for her nursery, I found out I am pregnant which prompted me to make baby quilts for myself, which is not good cause I don't know what I am having so I made a boy then a girl quilt... LOL. Although I did some old wives tales tricks and they all said boy, LOL, very scientific, right? Anyways, enough rambling Leah, LOL. I am hoping to have borders, which will be the gray material, since it is the only material left, on by the end of the week. Then I am just going to stitch in the ditch since I am newer to quilting, hopefully by two weeks time. It is a queen size, the only block with a pattern is a five patch! Thanks for looking!

    Love the purples and lavender - so feminine, plus a modern print, and the fabric swirls completely soften the patches. I think she will love it!

    It's a pretty quilt. Lots of movement. I'll be interested to hear how you do with the quilting. I think I'd be cross eyed if I tried. LOL
