    I am getting all of my dental work done at the local University dental school, and my dear little dental student and her hubby are expecting their first baby any time now... I don't see how she's kept up the pace of her classes and clinicals while pregnant, let alone bending over peoples' mouths for hours at a time! Anyway, I wanted to bless her with a baby quilt, and got it finished last night. I washed it and got it all crinkly... Used only warm water and this time got 5% shrinkage! I'll sneak in a couple pics of the bear in bunny pajamas that I finished yesterday, too. :-D

    I forgot to mention that I did the piecing on my Singer 66 treadle (in my avatar). This it the first thing I've sewn on it, and my first project on a treadle. Loads of fun...

    I put a 'spine' of leftover pieces up the back

    Crinkly quilts are the best, IMO! What batting did you use?

    Warm and White. Last one I washed hot/warm and it shrunk 10 %! This one I washed warm/cold and it shrunk 5%. I'm afraid it's not done shrinking, tho.

    How nice of you. The quilt is so sweet for a new baby and the bear in the bunny suit is precious. Did you make him too. Do you have a pattern for the bear and suit?

    Love your Pooh quilt and the bear, so cute. I also like your red and blue quilt I see in the background in one of your pictures. I wish my quilts would get crinkly.

    Great job on both of them. I love the Pooh squares but the bear bunny makes me smile.

    Thanks for sharing,
