Teya's Baby Quilt

Before Teya was born, my mom offered to redo the crib bedding. We chose green damasks and brown prints. To coordinate, I decided to make a boy quilt and a girl quilt (we didn't find out the gender of our third baby). I luckily finished the girl quilt first.

This pattern is a smaller version of "Gumballs" by Under the Garden Moon in crib size. The squares are 8 1/2 inches and the circles are hand-appliqued on. I used the template method to applique the circles on. The inner border is a 1 1/2 inch stop border and the outer border is 4 1/2 inches. I quilted it using a large looping stitch, basically a version of a meandering stitch. I enjoyed making this quilt. The boy version (blues, greens, & browns) is still under construction. The squares are finished. When I finish it, I'll get it posted.
