Whirlygiggles quilt center done and a Giveaway!!



Hi everyone, today I had the day off work. I decided to start a baby quilt that I was asked to make. I could choose any pattern I wanted. It just had to be for a little girl. Now, I only have the center panel done. I have to put a few borders around it. I think it looks nice. It was my first time trying this pattern. I used this tutorial for the GreetingArts blog. It was very easy. I will have to make it again, but for myself. I do want to put some appliques in the border to give the quilt a bit more personality. I didn't use pastel colors because I like to have a bit warmer colors. I like the fabric I chose. What do you think? Is this a nice pattern for a baby quilt? I'm a bit nervous, since I was asked to make this by a friend of mine and I want to be sure that he likes it. He actually asked me to make two baby quilts. One for his daughter who just turned one and one for the boy his wife is about to have at the end of the month. I need another quilters opinion on this one. I'm not a professional quilter, so its not perfect. What do you think??
Also there is a wonderful giveaway at Tattered Threads & Willing Hands. She is celebrating her Blog-A-Versary!! You have to go check it out.

How fun, I was just looking at the other participants in the Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap and saw your blog! I have no idea what to make my person, hopefully I will figure it out soon ;)
