This is a baby quilt that completes a nursery for a friend of mine.  Her baby boy is due at the end of Jan.
Anyways, I will have more pictures up tomorrow because we will be dropping everything off tonight, and the room will be completed.
Its not perfect, but I sure am happy with the way it turned out. 

I hand stitched the clouds on because i couldnt figure out the "right" way to do it with my sewing machine.

Oh how cute!!  I love the clouds in there.  It gives dimension to your quilt.  Nice work.

I love the different block designs and how you staggered them. Plus, the clouds make it awesome. Smiley

It's so cute! All of the design elements really give it an "Up in the Sky" kind of feeling, very whimsical Smiley

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

I''s beautiful. A little tip=before sewing all sides of clouds down put some stuffing in there and they will "pop" up on the blanket.
