    Just finished this tumbling blocks for a baby quilt for a friend's shower this past weekend. Started it last Saturday, finished it this Friday night. Since I am such a batik ho, I had plenty in my stash to do the quilt, found it fairly satisfying. Made a trip to the store for background and backing. Due to pocketbook constraints, had to quilt it myself, but didn't do too badly.

    I thought it fairly gender-neutral, and had a bit of a fright when picking out the background and the store clerk said, "well, obviously it's for a boy!" No one else agreed with her, so I blew off her comment.

    Had a little discussion about the label in the "main" section of the forum and as the pictures show I made a label, but will not finish it until the baby is born. Didn't follow the advice of one of my smart azzed friends who said to just toss a sharpie in with the label and call it good. Uh, huh....

    pieced, not quilted

    Very nice. I see gender neutral & don't worry about anyone's comments. Love the colors.

    This is the instruction booklet I used. Also, here is a youtube video about it.

    Thank you for the source info. Will try to find it through the library. Lots of other quilting videos on the youtube link. Whew - so many designs that appeal, so little time!
    Your quilt is just beautiful and the border & background were a wonderful choice, too. It's said that babies like intense colors so that should be one happy baby! Lucky one, too.

    It's sold out at Amazon. But the video is pretty good for the experienced sewer. Does it start out with 2 inch strips?

    Sorry, I just re watched the video and I think she starts out with 2.5" strips.

    I see a beautiful quilt and one that will stand up to grubby little fingers (pastels have a bit of trouble hiding those) and drool marks. Very sweet gift.
