I recently moved to a different state and two of my friends were pregnant at the time.  Since I wouldn't be there for the births, I wanted to do something extra special for them so I made them each a baby quilt.  These are my first two quilts ever and I learned alot while making them.  They are machine pieced and quilted.  I have more close-ups if people are interested.  Let me know what you think.
