    huntannette, I love your painted rocks, I've done some that look pretty much just like them. Aren't they fun to do? When I need a break from quilting, I'll paint some more!! Hugs and smiles, Linda aka wildyard

    Just leave it, the baby won't be a baby for long. It will get used through the years.

    I think the length looks okay. Do what you think is best and remember they do grow up.

    I would not shorten it. Those babies don't stay babies very long you know! It will be perfect as he grows and he really will get much more use from it!
    It is a very cute quilt!

    I always make big quilts so that the child can have it on their big child bed and will be alright until they are in their teens.

    It does look kind of long, but i would leave it just the way it is. I like the material that you used, they will love the quilt and so will the little boy when he gets older and having it longer will mean that he will be able to use it longer.

If you want it more as a play mat I would take the row off. The pattern looks like it would lend itself well for a toddler quilt too.

    I love it the way it is, babies grow fast, and they love to wrap themselves up in a quilt made with love.
    GOD bless.
