    Several months ago I posted the fabrics and asked for suggestions of a quilt to make using them. Several suggested Warm Wishes. It was easy and fun to do. I plan to make another. This will is going to my grandson for his 11th birthday on Saturday. He loves penguins. I also bought a set of gray sheets and I'm going to trim the top sheet and the pillowcase with the leftover penguin fabric and make a matching pillowcase.

    The front, the edge really doesn't ripple like it's doing in the picture.

    The back, he could really use either side.

    Beautiful quilt-He will love it. Great idea on the sheets too. I am making Pinocchio quilt and also buying the book to go with it. That all will be for Christmas. I haven't started yet not sure why.

    Awesome quilt!! I have been looking at a lot of Warm Wishes lately because I am thinking about making one and I have noticed that some don't have the right look where they have the square around the blocks and then some blocks look almost as if they are floating. Yours is perfect!! Great job!

    I have noticed that about the warm wishes quilts also Rachel. Some pop and some blend. The one I did blended and I was so dissappointed.
    Sunflower, that is a great quilt.

    Yeah this is why I have been looking at a LOT of them, because I am afraid that will happen to me. I think the trick is that you don't want the squares that are whole squares to be a dominant fabric, it needs to be lighter or softer looking that the rail fence blocks, and I think having your darkest fabric in the middle of the rail fence seems to work the best. Most of the ones that I have seen that blended had white or a light color in the middle of the rail fence and then their plain block fabric was too dominant so my eye was drawn only to that.

    That is one reason why I did not make one before I did the one I posted last week. The only ones I had seen blended into each block too much then I saw one that et the blocks off like this one and I really liked it. I really like the way mine came out and will make more for sure.
