I just finished another baby quilt.  This time for parents who aren't finding out if the baby is a boy or girl before the birth.  Was a new challenge for me to make something that worked for either a boy or a girl!

I love it! "Girl" and "boy" stuff gets so old. And the back is really great.

LOVE your quilt!  I really like your colors...my son's first room was orange, kiwi and aqua...it was SO cute.  Is your quilt stippled?  I really like the look of it!

Thanks for your kind words! 

I free motion machine quilted the quilt.  I just do a kinda  random wiggly loopy design.  I'm sure there's a more technical term for it!  It's what she does here:

Then if you throw the quilt in the washer and dryer, you get really wonderfully crinkly results!

this is SO cute. I love your choice of fabrics (maybe since I can see 4 prints that I also have Tongue) and your quilting is really nicely done. I am a crinkly quilt fan!

I so want to learn how to do this.  I love such things.  I am so scared of my machine though- learning about different feet, feed dogs, tension!!!!  There is a yarn and fabric store (a very upscale one) right near me, I should take a class but they are so expensive! 

Really lovely work.  This will be treasured for so many years to come.  Love the fabric too.
