    There were orphan blocks from a Basket Weave quilt...and when I bought a panel of nursery rhyme characters I knew the colors were a perfect match (well, I thought so). I had to add borders to the panel squares to make it work, but that gave me the chance to add more blue. It's a perfect 48" square. I am totally delighted with this little quilt. It's not going up for sale--after it's finished it's going onto the guest bed, to stay safely under the bedspread until a grandchild shows up--no matter how long it takes. :wink:

    I'm not adding a border; the binding will be in green. I have to think about how to quilt it.

    I couldn't decide which photo was better, so I'll post both.

    VERY NICE! I have the kit that came out for that panel that I got a year or so ago. It's all washed and ready to make up. I love it too. I'll post a pic when I finally get it done. Sandra

    Oh yes--Sandra--post yours! It's fun to see different things done with blocks.

    And I don't want a grandbaby TOO soon... the wedding is in July...so they need 3-4 years at least to enjoy being newlyweds. And Mark and I are enjoying our between years. :wink:

    A friend wants to buy another baby quilt, so I need to get busy so she has a choice!
