    This is my latest completed project. For my new granddaughter who is due to arrive in Sept. Parents have a set for the crib, so thought I would make something they could use as a quilt for her toddler bed when the time comes and to play on for now.

    I was a little disappointed that the outer border fabric pattern would not cut straight; but overall I am happy with the quilt.

    Oh I just love it!!! The orange gives it a special 'POP', I never would have thought of adding it. Good choice!
    Plus, this one can be used for a cuddle blanket when she's still a teenager. :thumbup:

    I like your quilt very much.My granddaughter is 6 and she loves purple and yellow. I like the orange. My mom used to put orange in her quilts.It was her favorite color. That was in the 80's

    Mmmm - that's lucious! Neat back. Good idea to make something for later on. Nowadays, they don't recommend covering babies in their cribs because of SIDS.

    It is beautiful. I don't think your granddaughter will care that the border fabric didn't cut straight. I didn't notice until you told me.

    I wish I had that kind of "eye." I wouldn't see those colors together, but that's so beautiful. Great work!
