    I made this for our Grandaughter's first Birthday! Loved the pattern when I saw it - it was for a small wallhanging and a nappy bag - so just enlarged the pattern and added a lot more fabric! Had a couple of blocks left over so made a pillowcase too. Ambah loves it! And the label ... (handsewn to the back of the quilt - only handsewing in the WHOLE quilt - just love my Bernina!) was adapted from something I read in a magazine ... "This quilt is sewn strong and true with all the love I have for you. No antique treasure or work of art, just the love from a Nanni's heart." (Fabric is Garden Song from Nancy Halverson)

    Pattern I used - thanks Natalie!

    thanks Soniboo and crafty bear! The sashing is actually how I joined it all together! Was all quilt as you go! Just love that technique! My daughter uses it on the floor at the moment (much to the horror of a few non-quilting friends of hers!) ... Ambah still in a cot - it's been washed quite a few times already, in just a month since we gave it to her! Oh how I love my quilts to be used, loved and cherished :)

    Oh my, that is so cool! Hopefully some day I will be at a more challenging stage. Right now, I'm still new and squares and rectangles are about all I can accomplish. You did a great job!!
