Here's a picture of my latest baby quilt. The picture is appliqué'd and the border painted. I just get the paint and fabric medium at the dollar store and it works like a charm. All the white is in flannel from Wall-Mart (very inexpensive thank you) and once I've washed it a couple of times, it seemed to feel more cozy. I've outlined the picture and stippled the border. I really like it and I think my cousin will enjoy it.

Finally got myself a digital camera and boy do I regret not getting it sooner.

Your bunny quilt is just adorable! Any little child would love it!

Liked your 9 patch too. The colors are great.

You did a fine job. Isn't it nice to be a quilter? I hope you make many more. Your cousin will probably not use it!
