I sent this off to the newest family member, my cousin's daughter who was born in May, and I forgot to measure it first. I think it's on the small side for a baby quilt, around 37 x 42 inches. It is a bigger version of a doll quilt I made earlier this summer when I was trying out this appealing pattern for the May/June Doll Quilt Challenge. I even used the same green base rectangles, but I cut a Michael Miller Daisy Vibe charm pack into fourths for the corners, and one of those fabrics is the binding. The loopy machine quilting on the green is a great variegated thread in matching orange-pink. I hope she likes bright colors!
