It’s a Boy or The Rest of the Story

Fast forward five years and Elizabeth had a beautiful baby boy! Yeah, I could use the remaining fabric from the wedding quilt to make a baby quilt! And here it is:

“Curved cross hatching” in the central setting squares:

    I love the idea of saving fabric for a possible future baby and making it to match a wedding quilt! Something to remember!
