This is the first baby quilt I ever made and it never got delivered:
I made this for my husband's coworker who had a baby girl. This pattern worked up visually striking. My inspiration for the colors was the border fabric. I may have used a pattern from the Quilter's Cache for this quilt but I don't have any designing notes as far as I can tell. The construction pictures I have are dated Audust 2004. It's fluffy and tied with yellow 6 strand DMC embroidery floss. I have a ton of colors because I used to crosstitch. I also hand quilted hearts in the corners with it:
and made a matching pillowcase with a baby pillow:
This gift never made it to the recipient because after all that work, I washed it and found a blue stain in one of the yellow areas. It looked like pen ink but I never had a pen near it and there are no other spots so I didn't think it was the fabric. You can see it, kind of, in the whole yellow star on the upper left. It doesn't look so big but I was so distraught that it wasn't perfect that I couldn't give it away. We now sometimes snuggle under it in the winter. I believe it's 40in by 40in.
