It looks great! I love the colors, so modern and fresh.  Perfect for a little boy or girl.
If I myself took on such a project, the baby would be 14 by the time I finished the quilt Wink
I bow to your patients and determination!

Swap it like it's HOT...I do personal swaps.

Wow! You knocked this one out of the park for your first quilt!  Did you make a little tag to go on the back? If not, maybe you can do one after the baby is here, and put the name and birthdate on it.  That's always a cool thing for a baby quilt. The colors and fabrics are so pretty!

Pssst! I think we may have another quilter hooked here. Congratulations!

Thank you so much, Darediva. I didn't make a tag but I really wish I would have. Baby should be here any day now and I really like the idea of adding the name and birthdate. Perhaps I will snag the quilt back and add the tag Smiley.

I'm starting to look around for patterns for my next quilt!!

That is beautiful! Congrats on your 1st quilt. I often have wonky squares in my quilts too & then an Amish saying comes to mind-a perfect quilt is an offense to God...  I am my own worst critic!

it's beautiful! my first was my hardest... the fear, the anxiety, the worry, and then voila... a completed piece of beauty.. made all the worry worthwhile... i still worry through a quilt but never with the same intensity as that first one.. happy quilting!
