my mom asked to make a baby quilt for someone she worked with...she then went on to describe the nursery and was going on and on about how they were painting winnie the pooh characters on the walls. then i refused to make the quilt. i said if she wanted winnie the pooh she could buy the damned thing at a store (i'm such a jerk to my mom). so we compromised. we used the colours that would be in the room without having 'characters.'  Don't get me wrong....i liked old skool winne, but this crap is on EVERYTHING these days. and please don't boo at me but i'm not a fan of disney anymore. there i said it...
but enough with the banter, here is our compromise, if you are still willing to look:

Very nice!!  Much better than that pre-printed, off-the-shelf crap that Disney goes for!  I think a baby would love the prairie points to mess with on the edge too!

What a wonderful quilt - I love the edges.  I've never see that before, can you tell me what it's call and maybe how you did it.  I could see myself doing something like that if I knew how.

Edge and pattern very neat! I have never made a quilt before but just ordered fabric for a baby quilt.

i used a pattern for the quilt...i dont' know what one now. it was last year. the boarder was SOOOOOOO easy and i loved it too. its the first time i used it. the only drawback is that is wastes quite a bit of fabric but i think its totally worth it. each triangle is actually a four inch square. you just fold it in half on the diagonal and press it and then fold that triangle in half again and press. the long edge of the triangle should be the raw edge. each triangle gets tucked into the previous one. (let me know if i need to re-explain any of this)
i would take pictures of each step and post it cause i have leftover pieces but sadly, when i was packing to move last month, i knocked my digital camera off my dresser and it passed away. i''m so sad. i didn't realize how infinately useful it was until i lost it Cry

thanks for looking at it though...i'm glad people like it.

I understand your directions and I want to try it sometime on a quilt - maybe even the baby quilt I am currently working on.  Thanks!

very nice quilt and yep those edges are lovely, i have only done it once myself. a lot of people are doing little tubes of fabric, press and make little tabs of different lengths for baby to play with or attach a little  toy too etc with a curtain ring. nice to share ideas. cyndiq
