Right after I finished Jason Jr.’s Quilt, I had to begin on another one because my husband’s brother and his wife were expecting a baby! We were going to have a baby shower in June, so I wanted to have it ready by then.
I used the same book as before, Quilts for Baby: Easy As ABC by Ursula Reikes, but a different pattern.

I still need work on the actual quilting parts, though. They still end up a bit crooked.
The finished product:
Can you spot which of the squares was put on upside down? Despite that error, the mom-to-be loved the quilt and I hope the baby girl will too, once she is old enough!
