It's together. I can't really say that I love it. My piecing on this top was horrible. I don't know what my deal is. All my measurements were right, but once I got it all together everything was just a little off.

I followed the pattern for the most part. I tweaked two of the lines, just switched them out. I am really, really wanting to add some white to this. Maybe a white border around the outside ?

[raspberry lime squares]

My mother-in-law dropped off this quilt kit.

Actually there are 2 of them. I decided to make matching quilts for baby girl* and her older sister. Not sure if they are going to be identical or slightly different from one another.

Either way, I love the colors and the designs.

There are even instructions included !

There are 7 half yard pieces and 1 piece for the backing, all I needed to do was iron and and cut out the 8 1/2" squares.

Nap time was long today and I did just that. 

Next is assembling a pattern (the instructions even help you with that !) that I think I might like and start sewing.

The lack of white is unnerving for me. I might have to work some in somewhere.

One started, one to be started.
