I've made two of these quilts. They have gone to good homes with friends with babies. Loved making them. Thanks.

Like Kathryn, I have also made 2 quilts. One was king size. Love the "You Tube" instructions. Plus, I appreciate that you have included various sizes with your new patterns. It makes it so easy to know what to order. Thanks to FQS!!

I will admit to not paying much attention to this pattern when it first came out. I watched the video today however, and have downloaded the pattern. You make it look so easy!! Thanks for making this available.
