Made this for my best friend's baby. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Machine pieced dresden plates, hand quilted everything else. Flannel binding. I spent about two weeks quilting this, long hours and sore fingers. Snuck my Halloween fabrics in, though the kid was born in January Smiley

That's gorgeous and congrats on sneaking in unexpected favorites.  It looks beautiful and I'm sure the parents are very pleased. Smiley

Absolutely beautiful! My mom has been learning to quilt this year, and I'm considering picking it up.
