    Love love love! Great design as it won't be too babyish for the child as they get older.
    I've never tried quilting, but we went through Pennsylvania on a US holiday a couple of years ago and spent like 2 days solid visiting quilt shops on Amish farms. I ended up buying two (king size, paid a fortune to freight them home!). So now whenever I meet a quilter I am super-impressed!

    Oh you've inspired me I was wanting to make a quilt for my friends for their wedding, but I was scared it would be too hard. But that looks great! How long did it take you? I'm hoping to get a couple of practice ones done, and then the wedding present, for next February. Doable?

    That one took me about 3 days over 2 weekends. I bought a kit one from spotlight to do first.

    i made a few mistakes on it but was a good to learn.

    The patchwork it's self is not too hard - I'm slowly getting more accurate. The actual quilting itself a bit harder. I'm doing VERY simple patterns while I learn.

    I think I've improved tenfold from my first quilt to this one. I think with some practice you could certainly master it by february
