here is my latest quilt, its for a friend who is having a baby, and I wanted to do something that wasn't really pastelly babyish, and also was fun for the baby to touch and look at.

So I went with stars, and then I found some really cool bug fabric, and then some fluffy red faux fur and some flannelette, and gold lame, and some alien and rocket flannelette for the backing.  So its a bit of an assault on the senses really!  I enjoyed making this quilt, and hope the baby likes it!

and some of the stars with the backing as well

I think I have become addicted to quilting.

It's very bright,  they are saying now bright is best for training their eyes.   I absolutely love it. 

Me crafting always equals cold coffee.  *L*
Good thing I like it that way.

I love it, but one thing you should consider for future quilts. The life of your quilt is only as long as the life of the individual fabrics in the quilt. I am concerned about the lame. I've not found it to hold up well. Your quilt deserves a long life and I'm sure it will be loved for a very long time. I know my kids and their kids still have some of their baby quilts.  I've had to make repairs on some of them and as I am doing these repairs I wished I had used better fabrics. Again, I want to say how much I like your quilt and I don't mean to take anything away from it or your effort.  Just something to consider for the future choice of fabrics.
