My children chose the fabrics and designed the quilt for thier new sibling. All I had to do was sew it all together! We had some trouble with the background, since the original plan was to use plain white, but that looked flat. The random pocka-dot print worked much better. I love the stripe-y binding that DD insisted I use! The backin is flannel, so it'll be extra cozy for the baby. I learned long ago to make baby quilts extra big so they can use them as they get older. By the time they start pre-school and want a snuggle blanket, it's all broken in and familure!
