Baby Quilt is done

The baby quilt is done. I can't believe I finished a I did all the cutting last night after work. Today I did all the sewing. Momma Newbie did all the fringe cutting. (we now call her the claw because her hand is so

This is the first time I've washed a quilt after finishing it. I am always too afraid to wash it, in case it shrinks or the colours run. I am pleased with the results, I'll have to do it again.

A special thank you to 32.5 for her tip on the washable markers. That is what I used to draw the x on each square, and it really did wash right out. Crayola washable markers are now in my quilting tool chest.

Ok, so are you ready to see the masterpiece??? Here we go.

You did a great job. Rag quilts are so soft and cuddly. Now that you have mastered one size blocks, you'll have to make one alternating block sizes, 4 patch and solids. Make sure you do the math and leave enough for the fringe. I have made a few and my boys love them. They wash up great.

You did a marvelous job on the quilt. Good choice of fabric -- it looks great. I think you are going to have to take the "Newbie" off your name.
The soon-to-be newest member of the family will be warm and cosy.
