    Two baby quilts waiting for two little girl "greats" coming soon.

    Saw a picture of this quilt of here a few weeks ago, and decided it would be the pattern for the two new "great" grand babies coming later this fall, from two grand daughters. I like them very much, and will wait to put labels on them after the events happen. I just don't know what this pattern is??? x's and more x's, I guess. Comments on the pattern??

    very nice. have made a couple like that. and don't know if it was on purpose but you might have one block 4 patch going the wrong way.
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    Looks like the pattern could be a Jacob's ladder. http://www.ideas-for-quilting.com/Ja...uiltblock.html

    Too funny that this is the picture that got posted...Went to confirm, and yep, you are so right, one block is turned wrong. I'll probably fix it by the end of Oct. when it will be needed...hubby said to leave it alone, no baby is going to know the difference, but I "fix" a lot of stuff he never knows about, so thanks for the tip.

    Great quilts for baby girls. I'd be tempted to leave the block alone. I think the pattern is Jewel Box.

    Lovely choice of fabrics - and I had to look really hard to find the turned 4-patch. No one will ever know if you don't fix it.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    How pretty they are and how special to have their own quilt made by their GreatGrandmother. BrendaK.
