I made a quilt for the baby and also finished off a UFO in the process. I started this quilt 11 or so years ago after I took a class at the Quilt Rack in Ancaster where I worked for two years when my husband went back to school. The class was called Lemon Braid and was a pattern from the book "Open a Can of Worms" by Debbie Caffrey. I made a large quilt for my husband and then began experimenting with my scraps to make it in smaller sizes. I finished the half braids and it languished in a drawer until I found it last year. It's been waiting for a baby girl so I could finish it. I used a lot of fun novelty prints so it became a bit of an I spy braid.
|I found this great print awhile ago and it was perfect for the back!|

|swirly flowers in the sashing...great opportunity to practise them since they are not obvious :-)|
|The quilting on the braids was just a simple stitch in the ditch and a swirly motif in the braids.|
