ready to quilt

This little crib quilt sure went together fast. I'm going to very cowardly machine quilt this in the ditch. :0) I'm trying to figure out how to piece the backing today. And this came in the mail yesterday! I did a little dance of glee when I opened it and saw the pages and pages of fabulous antique quilts in it.
Now I have so many new project ideas I hardly know where to start!
Happy Quilting!!

What a lovely quilt Janet!! I don't think it needs fancy quilting, as the top is so dramatic without it. The book looks very interesting. I love antique applique quilts.

You did a great job on the pumpkin quilt so you will do fine on the crib quilt.
Love the cover of that book. Have fun reading it.
