Craftylittlemonkey sent me a baby quilt to die for!
It is too gorgeous and the photos totally don't do it justice.
Sweet alphabet animal squares, bounded by black and white patterns to stimulate the babies learning.
The back is totally soft to touch animal patterned flannel.
The red binding is so perfect, I can't even tell how it was attached, no stitches to be seen at all.
and red cotton ties to hold it together.
Thankyou thankyou thankyou!
I adore it, and actually cried a little when I opened it ( happy tears)

Yay! I just got home from my trip and am so happy that you received it and like it. You make such terrific quilts yourself, I was a bit nervous about this one. I don't really know what I'm doing so I watched a few youtubes and hand finished the binding, that looked more time consuming but easier than trying to figure out how to get it straight by machine!
So glad you like it, it was fun to make for you Smiley. Thanks for swapping!

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.
