    Well, I finally finished this crib quilt.....been working on it off and on for some time now.....it is for my nephew's baby born January 28 this year! Isabelle June will now be surrounded with very bright pinks, purples and lime greens!!! LOL I fussy cut the shapes from a fabric I got in a swap and machine appliqued them to the pink and purple squares....then I did a simple 9 patch for the opposite side....made the quilt reversible....stitched in the ditch on the applique side and tied on the 9 patch side!

    both sides

    Gorgeous! Isabelle June will most certainly be an artiste with such lovely images around her! You must teach her to quilt. She's going to have an eye for it!

    I LOVE IT. I love the colors. I love the applique. I love the fact that you did a nine-patch on the back. Great quilt.

    Do you go through all 3 layers when you tie on one side? Then it would show on your applique side, wouldn't it? Explain because it is a great idea and I want to know how you did it.

    Nel...I did go thru all the layers...on the appliqued side hardly anything showed, I used 3 colors of embroidery floss to tie it...it wasn't much more than a speck on the other side and it ended up in the center of each design so it looked like it sort of belonged there with the 3 colors mixed. On the nine patch side, I left about an inch of thread after knotting each tie twice. I hope this answers your question.

    Thanks everyone for the nice compliments!

    I think it is absolutely darling! Bright is good for babes - activates their brains! Plus it will be a great lap quilt for her some day - sooner than you think sad to say.
