For the greater good.



This cute little baby quilt was created from my belief that EVERY baby needs a quilt. I had the opportunity to provide a quilt to a newborn who just happened to be born on our anniversary day. How cool is that? The pink and brown was just a piece I had in my stash and backed it with a solid brown. Quilting was a simple square on the outside edge then diagonal through the dots, changing directions when I reached the outer square. I had no idea what colors the mother had chosen but when it was presented, it matched the other items for the baby including another blanket and the diaper bag.

I apologize for the bad photo, the wind was blowing and it was overcast. Not the best conditions for a picture.
