Hi ladies - this is the third quilt I've made, and definitely the most complicated so far (though it's only a version of 9 patch...).

I think I'll do a solid border, and not sure yet about backing. But I've been collecting these gorgeaous 5" charm squares I've gotten on ebay - and now I think it will be a quilt for my first baby due in June (no idea the gender, but since it's full of bright colors I think it would work for a boy or girl - what do you think?)

So, comments welcome (and since I can't figure out how to put the image directly in the post... all I can do is a link... if anyone has a tip on getting the picture from flickr directly on here I'm all ears)

Your quilt is very, very pretty; I love it!!  It is amazing how simple squares and rectangles can look so good. 

One is less than three.

It looks fantastic! What a bright, wonderful quilt. Perfect for boy or girl (since, really, it's what momma likes anyway!  Grin)
