planned to use it for her someday. The block fabric including the blue was
a border print. The multi-colored strips at the top and bottom of each block were part of the sashing on the original quilt. I used black for sashing to separate the blocks. The outer border is phrases from VT. I had strips of that which allowed me to have all four borders with the words right-side-up. For the quilting I just stitched in the ditch.
It was a fun quilt to work on, and both mom and baby liked it. I had enough fabric to make a diaper bag also, and still have scraps left to use in a graduation quilt for Elizabeth when the time comes. I’m keeping some of every fabric I use to make something for her–something it never occurred to me to do when Cari was little and I sewed all her clothes. I always loved to look at the quilts my mom made and identify whose clothes the fabric came from!
