The quilt's new owner, four-and-a-bit months old, checking out mum's handiwork. The quilt IS square, honest -- it just kept getting bunched up by eagerly grasping little hands, so it looks a little wonky.

    It's gorgeous! I've been thinking about making a quilt, and yours is a great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you all so much for your kind words. Much to my delight, the baby seems to really like it -- there has been much scritchy-scratchy feeling of all the seams, and he falls asleep clutching the fuzzy border. Makes all the hard work seem worth it :)

    It's so amazing to see this in a finished state after watching you progress with it over the years. What an absolutely beautiful quilt! (And of course, little H. is the most adorable addition to it!)

    I've always wanted to make this quilt. I would never have the patience for hand piecing and quilting such a large quilt! Congratulations-- non-quilters have no idea what an accomplishment that is!

    That picture is so adorable! Love the quilt too. Do you still have the pattern?

    Thank you everyone!

    @ teaquilt -- the pattern is "Jewelled Squares" from Kaffe Fassett's "Glorious Patchwork".

    It's a wonderful quilt (and baby of course)
    I love how you used all this blue and squares and made it into something really great!

    I just discovered the history of your quilt on SMS.
    What a lovely, lovely story!
    I adore your quilt, I adore the calm and togetherness-with-friends that I feel.

    Your baby boy is perfectly dressed for this shot :-)
    By now he must be quite grown up.
