A baby quilt finished

Look at the pattern I found last night by accident!
I almost screamed out loud!
It was in one of my old quilt books.
It makes the cutest wall hanging using feed sack fabric for the dresses.
Handkerchiefs can be used for the collars.
You can accent with antique buttons and even jewelry.
I wanted the pattern when I saw it at the Stover Quilt gathering last month.
But tightwad me thought it would be one of those patterns
I would purchase and never get made.
So I passed it by.
Here is a picture I took there.
The pattern was for sale for about $8.00 or $9.00.
Now I will have to find some feed sacks.
I would be willing trade for a fat quarter.

Here is my latest project I have been working on.
It's a darling baby quilt.
It's the first quilt I have made in ages that didn't include paper piecing.
That was a challenge for me.
I machine quilted it.
It will go to it's new home next week.
The baby is due in 15 days!

The dress pattern is so different and cute, too. Can't wait to see your version.

Wow you are so talented! I don't have any feed sacks-but I hope you find some.

Loved the video below-and the wedding post too.

I was thinking about you this week-I got a tour of the new Blacksmith Shop-it is really really nice-I can't wait for you guys to see it!

That baby quilt is great! I love it.

I've never seen a pattern like that. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Love the colors on the baby quilt and the dress pattern is too cool!

All our feed sacks are like nylon or something? so I don't think I'm much help? Can't wait to see the finished product though!
