Default ABC quilt finished.

If you recall, I asked for advice and we all decided that green sashing looked better than the stripe fabric I used for the back. However, as I auditioned the green further down the quilt, it was just too much. So, I substituted white.

The baby girl this play quilt is for got off to a rocky start. She arrived 5 weeks early, at 4 days old she was air lifted to another hospital for a blockage in her tummy, and then spent about 5 weeks in NICU. I'm happy to report she is now home w/her parents and doing well. She will receive her quilt this weekend.

Thanks for looking. Oh, and this is the first FMQ quilt I was pleased with enough to give as a gift. Ha.

This came out adorable. So glad this baby girl is finally home with hopefully her medical issues resolved and behind her.
