    You inspired me. I've got most of a top together, and have had a lot of fun, especially as it's my first project in years. But am so jealous of your border fabric--searched high and low for a multicolor that would pull my crayon colors together. Went to every store between Portland and Salem OR, online too. Every batik multicolor was either muddy or just a couple of colors. Gave up and bought a bubbly blue and white pattern, but am debating about using it now. Would love to know the manufacturer of that fabric, if you know it.

    I do not know the maker of the fabric, sorry. I bought it in one of the little stores here in Anchorage. Or maybe it was Kenai. Actually, the store in Kenai has a number of batik fabrics not unlike the colors in this one. You could contact them?

    I love it. Very colorful and some really yummy batik in there. I agree, totally gender neutral. I have a real soft spot for baby quilts that are not the "baby norm" fabrics, they are so fun. This is one an older child would still be happy to be toting about. (okay maybe not toting about, but snuggling under on the couch!) Great job!

    Great quilt! I have had the book for AGES stored on the "future projects" shelf in my sewing room. LOVE the label idea which I am going to incorporate into a baby quilt I am trying to finish. When finished, will you just applique it to the back? You said you used invisible polyester thread. May I ask the brand and what color you used--the clear or the smoke--since you have such gorgeous variation in light, medium, & dark colors--or did color even matter since you were ditch stitching and sewing along seams? My problem is that the 1900s quilt pattern I am using calls for grid stitching across the design elements of the block (8-pointed star with appliqued petals in the center of the star) and because the value of the stars and flowers is so varied, it isn't possible to come up with a neutral thread color. Am hoping invisible poly is the answer. Thanks for sharing those great pictures and for any advice.
    I didn't make this beautiful GFG quilt but it's on my wish list to do

    Truly gorgeous!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
