    Nephew-to-be Braden's quilt

    It's been a while since I posted pics. Hope this works like I think it will. I am a procrastinator. Is there a 12 step program for me? I finished this quilt yesterday and the shower was today. I wanted baby camo, since this is Whitetail deer country, but couldn't find any in cotton, so I went with batiks. This pattern was very easy, I will certainly make it again. Thanks for looking. My quilting needs the galloping horse approach, so don't peruse to closely...

    G'ma Kay,

    That is a very nice quilt and I personally think your quilting is wonderful. What does the "galloping horse" approach mean? By the way, I am also a procrastinator, always have been and probably always will be. Sometimes I think it is an affliction (and I don't like it.)

    Kitsy - the "galloping horse rule" means that if a man on a galloping horse can't see anything wrong, then nothing is wrong!!! Lots of us (including me) need to invoke the rule on occasion, although we try to not need it!

    I really like it! Those strong colors will hide spills so much easier than the usual pastels. Thanks for letting us know that the pattern is easy - I'm a procrastinator too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
