Very simple, and didn't take too long. But it cost way more to make in time and in money than i thought it would.
All i have to say is that baby better love and cherish it... or ill have to go steal it away.

First time quilting... didn't mean for the quilt lines to be wavy, but they were, so i just went with it.
It's a tad smaller than crib size and i think will work well for a boy or girl (since they don't know which one yet) I figured i'd better go ahead and make it while i was motivated.

All together it probably took me 6 hours... not too bad i don't think.
Completed it in about a week.

Coments are always welcome and greatly appreciated.






first two show more accurate color.
I used cotton batting

Love the colors - especially the orange and green.  I also like how you chose to quilt it - I never would have thought of something like that on squares but it's a great effect.

it's beautiful.  I love the wavy quilt lines.  I hope my first quilt (I've just discovered a huge interest in quilting and want to start!) looks half as good as yours!
