    soon to be off the list of wip's. this little quilt is based on a carol doak pattern. i just love her stuff. fun and easy. this went together very quickly.

    you all know that i make these for the new babies at my church. another name was added to the list this wk so now we have 7 sets of expectant parents. i love to make baby quilts. they are great practice. i am, however, feeling the need to make a larger one soon.

    That is so pretty and cute! Do you wait until you know if it will be a boy or a girl? I think you'll do a fabulous job on a bigger one! Lucky families in your church!

    thanks celeste, i don't always wait til i know the gender. but since in know all the couples i try to make something that i think fits mom's taste.
    i do try to keep a couple of quilts in the works that could be for either a boy or girl.

    I LOVE :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: that quilt! Your fabric / color choices are terrific, and your work is very precise. Well done!! 8) :lol: :thumbup:

    I don't suppose there is any chance you would share that great pattern with us? (hint, hint.... but no pressure!) :wink:

    Thats looking great! I like to make baby quilts too and make them to send to Project Linus. I tried the paper piecing and did use a block from Carol Oates (thats right I think)..anyway..it was lots of fun. As soon as I finish the 2 WIP I have right now..maybe I'll try this heart block now that I've seen how great yours turned out :lol:

    Wow!! seven new babies! So very sweet of you to make each new baby a quilt to welcome them to the world. This is one of my favorites of all your pieces I've seen so far!

    cnolan, thanks for the kind words. it was a fun quilt to make.
    the name of the book where i found this pattern is "easy paper pieced baby quilts". it is by carol doakes. very cute quilts in this book. and they really are easy. and easy to tweak.

    I am so thrilled... I already have that book! 8) :lol: 8)

    I have to tell you, though... I probably would not have given the pattern much of a chance, based on the fabric choices in the book. Yours are MUCH better!!!!!

    Thanks for helping me remember about a great book in my stash, and inspiring me to try one of the patterns in it! :D
