    Waaaaaay back in January I had you help decide on the border for this baby quilt.

    Well here it is the end of March and it is finally finished. I had no idea this quilt took me that long! :lol:

    I took all of your suggestions and cosidered them. Thank you for all the ideas! It helps to have other opinions.

    This is what happened....hope you like it as much as I do. It is for little baby girl- Kylee -who is due in May.

    A stunning finish! I just love pinwheels. And the pieced border is such a nice addition! Make more!

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments :) Glad you like it :!:

    It ended up being 52"x52". I am pretty new to this and have not learned how to plan out the size. I just let the quilts grow to the size they want.

    The mom is not crazy about pink so I used the dark purple stripe on the back (matches the border) I machine quilted it with a varigated purple thread.

    That is one big baby quilt!! It's georgous!!! I have the same problem. Unless I am using a pattern from a book my quilts grow, and grow, and grow also. :oops: What starts out as a full may just as well finish up to a queen or even a king! I feel blessed as long as I have enough fabric to finish. :lol:
