So I don't really know anything about quilting but I love them. A friend of mine was having her 3rd child (a girl after 2 boys) so I made her a girly baby quilt, using fabrics that I had in my stash left over from dresses I made my own two girls (the pink butterfly print and the blue flower print). The other fabrics in the top were remnants (the reddish color is really a dark pink, but it looks too dark in this picture). The colors are very bright.

The back is fleece and oh so soft! I didn't add any batting because I wanted this to be a fairly thin quilt and the fleece was so cozy I figured it probably didn't need batting too...

The quilting is stitch in the ditch and then I decided that wasn't enough so I made concentric rectangles in each patch.

I didn't do the binding right but I was working on a deadline and by that point I just wanted it done! Next time I'll do better. Smiley

And the last thing... it turns out this baby girl shares both my first and middle name (Catherine Elizabeth). Not that I had anything to do with naming her, but it is pretty cool. Wink

So, how'd I do?

It's lovely. I like the extra rectangles in the quilting.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
