The baby quilt finished, sweet dreams

Hi, yep I finished the baby quilt and I can't help but feel pretty pleased.
When I rashly said I would make a quilt for a new arrival I didn't really have any ideas about how I was going to set about doing it. Then I remembered that Jenna at SewHappyGeek had posted a tutorial for a sweet baby quilt.
I had decided on a bright mix of colours with white for the quilt front and for the backing I chose some spotty fabric to tie in with some of the other fabrics I used. Stippling the whole quilt was a bit tricky and I think I should have made my pattern more open but it was all a learning experience.

I'm sure the new baby won't notice the imperfections snuggled up having a nap.

I'm linking up to Manic Monday Linky Party - Thanks for the tutorial Jenna

It is just beautiful! I love the strips of white to really allow the patterns and colours to shine, and your stitchery must have taken ages and ages ... I bet this will be treasured for generations. :)

It's beautiful. Well done you. I know, from experience, how long these things take ;) Love the bright colors popping out from the white and - wow! - that stippling is amazing. Congratulations!

I love the looks of this baby quilt, Amanda! Like you said, I'm sure the baby (or anyone else for that matter) won't notice any imperfections!

When I was with my grandma last month and she was showing me how to crochet she said the unthinkable: "If you mess up just keep going. No one will ever notice!" And here I thought all of her afghans were perfect!?!?! ;o)
