well, thanks for your encouragement, but I doubt i'll ever be able to create something so fine in such a short time... my quilts are always really wonky too... (Maybe it would help if I could cut two pieces the same size  Wink  )

I was wondering about the "eye-spy" theme-- so the blue patch on bottom right would be something like "I spy a monkey, what do you see?"  that's so neat how you made a quilt a game-- and I totally agree that if your teen-aged son said anything positive about a craft (noticed it, even) it's a keeper.

Not quite like that (I know you can't see that square very good but it's actually the Cat in the Hat).  Here's what I plan to do:

I sat down with the quilt and found 30 items on it that a child and/or parent and child can look for and then I'm planning to make that into an alphabetized list, cover it with plastic and give it with the quilt.

Here's an 'example' list for the following 2 squares (can you find them all)

I Spy:

pitchfork          mouse eating corn          backpack
weathervane    ruler                             3 chickens
hammer           horse                            clock
crayons

     

When you have an entire quilt to look over, it takes awhile to find everything.  I realize that when a baby is very small the quilt is just something pretty for them to look at but as they grow older, it becomes educational in a fun way!

*sigh* 6 hours of solid quilting time sounds like bliss to me!

Heck, even 3 hours solid quilting time sounds like heaven!! Cheesy

Great job, Homerof2. Your work is always beautiful, and this is no exception. You've given me inspiration for the baby quilt I am planning for my friend.

Just a little update - the baby I made this for has finally been born - but it sure does feel funny not going to a shower now that she's here.  I hope went don't have pre-showers again!

Every shower I've gone to was before the baby was born. Including my own. Where do you live?
