  5. beautiful job, I'm sure it will be well used

  6. First time visiting (from Finish it up Fridays at crazymomquilts). What a refreshing quilt for a little one. I love that you tied the quilt - it makes a quilt, to me, feel homey and soft - like a baby. I still have the first quilt made for me when I was a baby, that was tied, and I used it with my daughter when she was a baby. You combined two great things in my mind in your quilt - modern/current colors and design with a vintage construction. Great quilt!

  7. A future heirloom, great quilt.

  8. Looks great. What a lovely gift.

  9. I love this pattern too, and you did a fantastic quilt!

  10. Wow! Love this. Amazing how a different color scheme can totally change up a quilt pattern. Thanks for letting me peak at your version.
