Just a quick and messy preview of the baby quilt:

I could tell early on that this was going to be a quick and messy quilt. No time to spend agonizing over the design and no eye for it anyway - I just took the idea and went with it.

They don't want to know what they're having so I went with primaries/rainbow to be gender neutral. Gender neutral is hard for me. It's an alphabet quilt although it doesn't exactly "read" as such. I have an ABC focus print that I love and I cut up one panel to form the blocks. They have fun pictures as you can see the letters when you're a bit closer, but you kind of lose it from a distance. Oh well. Mom and baby can get close to it.

Here is a close up of one letter:

Next up: assemble, quilt, in the mail by Thanksgiving. Can she do it??

looks to me like you have an eye for design! Really cute print. Interesting quilt without being over the top liberated. I always worry with gift quilts that they should be somewhat conventional. Nice work!

Thanks for the votes of confidence, guys! I think I can, I think I can :)

@woolywoman, I know what you mean about keeping it conventional for gifts...trying to walk the line here.
