I just finished this for a coworker of mine. I think I like the back better than the front. Her colors are blue and brown and I wanted to make something that wasn't too babyish so it could grow with her little boy. It's pretty big (39x50) and it's tied off at 13 points on each square (that's 156 little knots!). I like to use strips of fleece as binding because it's really forgiving, it doesn't ravel, and it's nice a cushy - plus, I picked up a 1/3 of a yard remnant for 75cents - score!. All of the fabrics are flannel except the yellow squares which is a really soft thin cotton.
And here's a top that I finished for a friend who's having a little girl in July. It's a stacked coin pattern, and I put it together yesterday afternoon. I love this pattern - it went really fast. BUT, now that it's finished, I think it seems a little "grown up" for a baby (maybe it's just because I want to keep it for myself?)... I haven't decided on the back yet. I still have several strips of the batik fabric to do some sort of peicing, but I'm not sure what fabrics I want to use. Any suggestions?
