    Oh, the quilting was a challenge since I had never machine quilted anything that large before. I went with squares because I thought that would work best with the design given my limited quilting abilities. I stitched a half inch from each side of the seam line for each row and column (black lines) and the center lines of each block (blue line) that I had marked with a Frixion erasable pen. Hard to explain but I hope this picture helps.

    I think the quilting looks amazing and I am so impressed that your pieced blocks on the back are lined up so the quilting from the front lines up perfectly.

    That quilt is sooooo pretty.... The colors are so brought and happy.... I love this pattern, and have used it on several quilts.

    You can get two baby quilts out if ine layer cake, with this block.

    Great job!

    Love that label. Never ever have I thought of doing a label like that. Thanks for the idea. And the quilt is great. Thanks for sharing.

    My exact thought when I read the title of your post.

    Beautiful quilt! Your quilting looks great to me and I LOVE the label on the back!

    Wow... I so love it! The front, the back, the label... what a lovely Christmas quilt! And you made it work so stylish... you know I wouldn't think that you were short of fabric for the back... I could actually borrow this idea, it rocks!
