    Thumbs down Help! Supposed to be a throw for the couch, and ALL I see is "baby blanket". What did I do wrong?

    IDK If it's the pattern....or those tiny polkadots.

    But ALL I see is a baby blanket.

    Should I add more black? I have various black/red/white FQ's.

    ETA: Sorry, this top needs to meet a hot iron.

    Personally I don't see anything wrong with it. it is beautiful.

    I dont see baby at all, its great! What about adding the same orange color border then the same green border to tie it all in with the black? Idk but i think that would look nice

    Sorry for the bad picture. That pink/orange part is actually Red with tiny white polkadots.

    Don't see anything 'baby blanket' about it, and believe me I have seen plenty of baby quilts. I think it looks nice, and would be proud to curl up with it.

    Nope looks good to me! Sometimes after looking at a quilt for a long time while quilting it we tend to SEE more then what everyone else sees. It's not "fresh" anymore. Put it away for a couple of months or so where you wont be looking at it and then bring it back out. I promise you, you will feel so much different about it. I learned this from Greta Gramma's blog. She does the same thing and it does work. I've done it.

    What makes you think it looks like a baby blanket? Is it the size? Because it doesn't look like a baby blanket. It's very pretty.
