"Guess How Much I Love You" blocks DONE!

I have finally finished the last 3 blocks for the Guess How Much I Love You baby quilt. If you click on the photo, you can see the other two blocks I stitched in my flickr photos. I did these designs on a yellow Kona Cotton and used DMC#793 for the stitching. If you would like to see blocks 1 through 7, they are in my Redwork album at my webshots site which is:


I began this project a few years ago when my daughter decorated her first expected child's nursery with a cute crib set in this theme. She had the very popular book and sent me some of the pictures (7) because I thought they'd be cute to embroidery. Meanwhile a couple years ago JoAnn Fabrics brought in a line of fabrics with this theme and I will use that for the sashing & border.

After the first 7 blocks I couldn't figure how to make a quilt top from them, so I borrowed the book from the library and found 3 more images to embroider.

That baby (Jack) is now 5 and has a 2 yrs old sister, so I'm a bit slow. Guess this quilt will go into the Posterity drawer for a great grandchild because it looks like 7 grands is going to be our final total. The eldest is almost 18, so who knows when the "greats" will start arriving. I hope to live to see this quilt warm a new family babe!

Stitch on!

I came across your page while searching for Nutbrown Hare fabric. Do you have any idea where I could find the fabric or who the manufacturer is? Thank you.

Teacher6: I could find no way to email you personally regarding your question. I hope you see this comment. The fabric I have was purchased mostly at Jo-Ann Fabrics. At the time they had a large display of the line. I also bought some on eBay where you might try searching in the crafts area for ...Guess how much I love you" fabric..... When I did it, I came up with one current auction. The selvage marking on the fabric I have reads "Guess How Much I Love You (tm) (c) SMcB/AJ 2003, not for use in commercial product manufacture".
