This is the pattern that was a freebie from the Temecula Quilt Company website last fall. Some of you may have seen variations of this pattern because quite a few quilters made it. I didn't do it when it was first put out but when I was thinking of a baby quilt for the next little one, this pattern came to mind.
I quilted hearts in the border and the rainbow fabric was given to me by Marg one evening when we were quilting. She had two pieces of it and when I told her I was trying to figure out a border, she offered one of the pieces.
I bound it in the darker blue that's in the quilt. I didn't like the original size. I thought it was too small so I increased the sashing to 1.5 inches finished instead of the one inch that was suggested. My quilt finished at 38" X 43".
I didn't like the triangles that were in the original pattern either - for the 'extra' blocks. To me they didn't make sense - they were just triangles placed in different ways. I decided that little animals appliqued in the odd blocks would be a whole lot more fun. I think the bunny is my favourite.
I had a lot of fun choosing fabrics for this quilt and absolutely everyone who has seen it has liked it.
Most importantly, the future mommy and daddy like it.
This was what part of my backyard looked like on Mother's Day.
The long shot.

Have a great weekend. I still have a few baby things yet to finish and one or two more things I was hoping to make.
