This quilt will be a surprise baby shower gift for a friend, but…. we’ve all felt this at some time, haven’t we Moms? :-)

I used an Auto-Border from the Checked Group, called Checked Double Inner and Outer Border, and incorporated the pattern of squares into my “belly blocks”, then just added some applique.

I plan to alternate a variety of blue solids with a variety of blue prints in the 1 1/2 inch squares, but had to use just solids here because of the file size. The overall effect, though, is to be a mainly monochrome quilt coloring of, well……blues.
