Back in April I won a giveaway from All spots and dots and stripes. Robin told me about a baby quilt she has been working on that took 48 charms to make. My spots and dots charm pack had 44. How easy to find four more to add to make this cute quilt for new baby Gwen.

I quilted Gwen's Quilt while on a retreat in July. However, it was this week before the binding got sewn and the quilt sent off to Gwen. I hear she has it now. Mind you, Gwen and her parents live in Chandler, Arizona. Not exactly quilt weather. So, she can sit on it for now. Maybe come January, when it is known to actually get chilly in Arizona, Gwen can cuddle in it.

Quilt happy,

Isn't it funny how any quilt looks more inviting draped over a chair or a bed than it does just hanging? This one is so fun!

I agree with Karen about the colors. So glad babyies aren't relegated to just pastels anymore! It'll be useful for many years to come with all those fun colors.
