Warm/cool baby quilt

 Here is the warm/cool quilt that I made for my grandnephew.  He will be born soon and I finished it just in time.  I am pleased with how it turned out.  I used a lot of juvenile novelty prints-trains, cars, frogs, mice, alphabets, etc.  It should provide a lot of visual interest for the little guy.
Here is a better picture of the Prince Charming quilt that was going to be the grandnephews.  This is a beautiful line of fabric.  The large panel at the top is a tortoise and a girl on a swing hung from a tree branch.  The middle panel are the paisley frogs.  The bottom is the raindrops.

Oh, I am reading your blog from ending back as far as I can today. Very entertaining and I love your work. I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am that you live next door to the worst neighbor. The one who complained about the line being up on your patio so you can take pictures of your quilts. Now, who is that hurting? Really! I have a neighbor who is just as bad. We have lived in our home for 17 years and every year we spray our yard with Walmart Weed n Feed. Well, a woman about 70 who just moved in down the street (in a teeny, tiny studio house) came to our home and said we were poisoning her and her cat. She said "how would you like it if I poisoned your dogs?" Scared me. We live in a town of 600, on 1/2 acre fenced yard. She went home and called us and said her cat was real sick and then sent us a registered letter with copies of how to naturally weed your lawn. One way was to cross the street and look at your lawn and see if it really looked as bad as you thought. She threatened to take us to court. Said in her previous town she had sued people for this reason and had won. She then called the company that had sprayed our lawn and threatened them and they said they wouldn't spray our yard anymore. So, we bought the bags of weed and feed and spread it out every year. Funny thing? It's more dangerous for animals. It sits on the ground for days where the spray soaks in in a matter of hours. And she has complained about everyone in town. She puts signs up in her yard about everybody on the city council. She's a busy body. Well, 2 weeks ago, the barn between her house and my house burned down and at 3 am when the fire truck showed up, she was dressed and hosing her house down. It burned the side of her car. Saved her house she rents. But...she slipped in the water and hurt her leg and is now suing someone for big bucks. Wouldn't you know it. But the most amazing thing has happened. The wicked witch is moving out of town!! No one will rent to her here, so she has to move to another town that knows nothing about her. Isn't it funny that she was all dressed and saved her house and possessions (she didn't have rental insurance) so early in the morning and was doing that before the fire truck even got there? Now, she's going to sue the owner of the home and who knows who else, probably the EMTs for some reason or another. But, anyway, I just want to say, I know what it's like to have a horrible neighbor that won't let you live your life like you want to. That nit picks. Like about a wire across your patio. My goodness!!
