It worked up really fast and it was fun to play with color and pattern as well as light and dark.
I like the idea of it looking like interlocked Ts or Xs. It is just a simple idea but I think often for baby quilts especially simple is best.
Mr. Hive doesn't really pay much attention to quilts here, it is just part of life. Last night as I was binding the quilt he came up and gave it a closer look and asked me "who quilted that one?". I told him I did. And he payed me a nice compliment. He said "Wow, your quilting is getting better." Who'd have thought he would notice that? It made me happy to hear.
I'm taking pictures of the quilt pre-wash to see if which look I like best. So tonight I'll wash and dry it and then take a few more shots.
Melissa's party yesterday was a huge success. Congrats Melissa! And congrats to Dawn, that won the charm pack for All Dressed UP. I'll be sending that out to you this week! There are some other winners out there - go check Melissa's blog.
