I made this quilt out of two tops I had lying around for my niece for Christmas. I had planned a cuter quilt, but I didn't have the money to get it professionally quilted, so I put two of my tops together and qulited this blanket with wavy stitching. The stitching is pink on one side and yellow on the other.

AND surprisingly, she loved it. She's one.  I figured she wouldn't care, but she picked out all the patterns and she wrapped her dolly up in it. Super cute! 

Here are some photos and of course, action shots!











Thanks for looking!! Smiley

ooo, I LOVE that quilt! Pinks and greens together are so girly. Your niece can keep the quilt forever -- I still have a baby quilt given to me 40 years ago, and I wouldn't part with it for anything.

That last picture with your niece is just too cute! I'm glad she loved it. Just goes to show that sometimes simplicity is best. Wink

What a cute quilt. I think it looks great and you can tell your niece loves it. You can't go wrong with blankets for little ones.

ooooohhhhhhhh... in the second to the last pic, it looks so soft and drapey!  Sometimes I think the more heavily quilted blankets are too stiff for the little ones (little quilts and little kids).  She will surely get a lot of use out of this one!
