Just big enough for a bassinet, just finished.
It is a perfect size (small), to get me motivated to get it done. And if the baby is a boy, he will be so soft and squishy that he won't really notice that is covered in flowers and not planes, trains or automobiles.
The quilt was quilted by hand mostly because the two amazing women who showed me how to quilt in the first place are very convincing when they say hand quilting is best. In fact, Lizzie is often heard saying...
"The women on the prairies didn't have machines!"
Maybe some of the did have those old treadle machines, but I take her point. Ultimately, the uniqueness of hand quilting is that the stitches have a life that lacks conformity - there is something comforting about that.
