Hannah's Baby Quilt

I've been very behind in blogging lately!  I shall see if I can catch up :-).  I finished Hannah's baby quilt on time for the shower that was held in February.  This is another I spy quilt made using the disappearing 9 patch pattern.  I had made one for another baby in our Church, but miscalculated on the math and ended up with enough blocks for another baby quilt.  I added borders to make it big enough. 
Found this cute children's print for the backing

I had one square left so used it for the label

Border quilting
Since there was a grid in place, I tried some interlocking squares for the quilting in the blocks.   This is more difficult than it looks!  It is very easy to make crooked lines in certain directions!  Baby quilts are a great way to practise since the baby won't care :-)
