Wow, this is so beautiful. Do you mind explaining how you used Excel? I would *love* a mini tutorial. I've been looking for a way to use up some scraps.

Way to go for making up your own pattern!

Yeah that makes sense. Maybe you can secretly steal it from him when he gets home and quilt it for him as a surprise?

Thanks! Actually, I started it while I was pregnant, but Noah was born 5 weeks premature. I worked on it a lot while sitting by him in the NICU, and once he was released from the hospital I used to quilt over him while he napped on me Smiley

He's finally catching up to full-term babies and is way too wily to use sharp things around. It's a great problem to have!

Hi All,

Here is my first attempt at hand quilting. It took me ten months to make this for my baby, but I really had fun. Unfortunately I used flannel on the back. Although that made it nice and snuggly, it hides all the hard work Sad

Also, this is the first time I've posted a project! Yea!

Julie

P.S. I hope I posted correctly!

If you want this to last a long time, quilting would be preferable to tying. When tied quilts are washed repeatedly, they can rip around the ties Sad I say go for it and quilt the thing.... it's a beautiful quilt, and wouldn't it be cool for him to look at it in 25 years and say, "my sister made this for me when I was in Iraq." It could last a century, and be passed down.

Just my 2 cents Smiley

What a good idea to use the more pieced tree and the pretty fabrics. I love it!

I love these fabrics so much, that if it was me I would add some solids and small prints to help highlight the other beauties. Another option is adding a plain-ish border around the center block to help offset it.

Jeez... maybe I'm too old, so take what I say with a grain of salt. You young whippersnappers are so daring and bold in your quilts!
