I origanally was going to only make one pattern but in Carol Doak's 300 paper pieced block book, I wanted to make so many of them that I decided that I will make 9 of my favorite in bright cheery colors. I made this for my BIL Jason and his wife. They just had a girl a few weeks ago. So glad they had a girl! Once I got the quilt together it was more on the girly side instead of gender neautral. Now my girls have 3 new girl cousins! this is my favorite paper pieced quilt! oh, I did a flanel backing which I have never done - after the quilting and everything - it was awesome! They live in MN so the warmer it is, the better.
