 Isn't it beautiful?!!

The back of the quilt. 
I think this is just as amazing as the front. It would be cute for a simple baby quilt!


I definitely want to try out the pattern! It would look great in some AMH! How about you? Would you like to win a copy of the pattern?? Megan is offering a free copy of the pattern to one of my readers! Just use the Raffelcopter below. I'll pick a winner Monday night.

  7. I've been so focused on getting baby quilts done by Thanksgiving (which is when I'll be seeing my now 6 & 7 month old nephews, and when the newest baby will be born), that I haven't been able to think about sewing for Christmas. However, I don't have anything planned either. I am making one of this family birthday boards for my mom. That's about halfway done.
