Here is a baby quilt I recently made for a friend who is due any day now. I wanted to make sure I got it done in time, so I went with an Irish Chain and used various soft hues I found in my stash.

Those are very lovely.  I especially like the doll quilt for the big sister. 

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.

Gorgeous! I love the soft, vintagey feeling of the baby quilt, and the doll quilt is absolutely adorable! Great job on both of them!

The nine-patch lends itself to so many different looks depending on the fabric, but I have to say the soft, vintage look is probably my fave. Lovely quilts and great quilting.  Smiley
