Dick and Jane baby quilt

My new granddaughter, Katherine Anne, was born on Feb. 22, 2010 to my son Ben and his wife Heather. Heather shares my love of Dick and Jane readers and has quite a collection too. I've been collecting the Dick and Jane fabrics for awhile and promised that the first baby would get a quilt made with these fun fabrics. Here is the quilt which was actually finished before the baby was born since she was two weeks late :-).

The quilt was machine and hand quilted:
The centre pinwheel:

This border print is just so much fun!

One of the larger squares. The pattern is from Quilt's #78 Patchwork Quilting magazine from summer 2007.
