I cannot say enough good things about this pattern. I made this as a gift for the son and daughter in law of a dear friend in Seattle. I purchased two charm packs of Tula Pink's Flutterby. I have actually used this same fabric before in another baby quilt. I love the bug motifs in the fabric. I pulled the more masculine colors for this baby boy quilt and the other charm squares are going to be made into a quilt for a baby girl. I used wool batting (which I love) and did a modern, straight line quilting. This quilt was also spray basted as y'all know I hate safety pinning!
I have noticed lately that a lot of quilters are taking their quilts outside to photograph them. The photo above was taken with the quilt thrown over the holly bushes outside my office. They were the "most green" I could find outside. I desperately need some spring and soon!
