What are you most proud of? I had only two weeks to complete this, so I am pleased with how it turned out as it was so rushed. Also it was my first attempt at machine quilting.

I bet that your sister was very pleased. I like the colors & how you combined them. Its a happy little quilt. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the lovely comment... My sister actually cried when I gave it to her as it was a surprise for her and the little family out in NZ, so it was worth the effort!

So pretty - great job in such a short time. Your family must be thrilled. Nothing like a little pressure to get the creative juices flowing. Wonderful

Haha the pressure was certainly on but worth it, I was pleased with it but dissapointed with the machine quilting as it was rushed and my first time so the straight lines were more like squiggles!

Don't worry - as soon as it hits the washing machine a few times, it will look just fine and well loved - I always plan on baby quilts in particular being washed, rewashed, and USED -- Don't save it for "someday"
