I finished the 2nd baby quilt with Robert Kaufman prints. This one gave me good doses of frustration. Firs, I cut the squares too large and had rip-rip and trim down some squares. Then the off-center pattern made my head as I figured out the piecing. (Remind me again, why do I do my own patterns?). Then I just couldn't get the edge colors right. Finally after more rip-ripping fun. I am done. Whew. I love the result and I get to deliver it the darling granddaughter at the end of the week. She lives alllll the way across the country and I haven't been to see her yet. I may not leave.

I also make a few rag dolls for her. Meet little sister (purple dress) and big brother (stars on his pants), and auntie (gray dress).

And the quilt for the darling grand niece is here. I will get to meet her on this trip too. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=457706.0

Really nice choice of colours to go with those cute animal prints. That is a very cheerful and unusual creation, it's sure to be loved.

The quilt and dolls were a big hit...at least for anyone over the age of 1. Little Piper was a bit fussy, but I'm sure she will appreciate her goodies in time.

So here is the quilt in action.
