I made this for a friend's son last summer and am just getting around to posting it here.  It turned out huge!  I think it ended up being 4 ft by 6 ft.  Much larger than your average baby quilt.  Wink  I like the pattern but this was my first time using yellow and I did not realize how a little bit of yellow can consume an entire quilt!!

And a close-up of the back so you can see the stitching:

We are in the process of switching over to cloth diapers.  Would love some advice, hint, tips.   Will swap for diapers!

I actually like the way there seems to be more yellow at the top, and less as you move down the quilt.  It gives it kind of a fluid feel, which I like a lot.

And great job with the stitching!  I don't suppose you can post of close up pic of the front, so we can see the contrast of that stitching against the blocks?  I'm thinking it probably looks very cool, but I'm bad at visualising things like that.

I'm still working on my first quilt, and trying to decide how I want to do it, if I want to do it myself, or send it to be done professionally. 

I am walking 12 hours straight for my local Relay For Life event.  [a href="http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11MW?px=16690269&pg=personal&fr_id=30095"]Please support me![/a href] I'm only 40% to my goal! =0(

I almost never make a crib sized quilt, they don't stay in it long enough to use it in there.  If I have the fabric and the time I usually make a twin topper size. Just big enough to cover the top of a twin bed. This way when they get older they can cuddle up on the couch with it and watch TV. My kids are 14 and 17 and still do it with theirs.


ps, I love the yellow in it, adds sparkle!
