Cuddle Quilt

I've been working on a couple of baby quilts for a retreat I will be attending in Indiana mid May. As an "entrance fee" to the retreat, we are to make and bring a baby quilt for the local crisis pregnancy center. I have made two -- one for a boy and one for a girl! The baby boy quilt, shown at left, is made of flannel, and is so cuddly soft! The little girl quilt needs the borders sewn on, and then it will be ready to be quilted. Will post a photo as soon as the borders are on!!

I am so looking forward to the retreat in May! It is with a group of wonderful women from an online quilting group that I have been a part of for many years. We come from all corners of the U.S., as well as one from Canada, to Indiana for 4 days of quilting and laughter.
