Baby is expected in early June and I'm busy thinking about colors, block patterns, and sizes. Actually I think the planning is my favourite part of quilting. Colours have been decided on and I found THE perfect piece of fabric for the back in my stash. Its 27" x 45" and 30-40 years old* so no chance of finding another piece. Lately I have been making baby quilts a bit larger than 30" X 30".

What say you?

Is 27" before seams for the backing just too narrow? It would be a rectangle to compensate. I guess I could put a border on the back too 8~(

* fabric is sturdy enough despite age. It's mostly white but that's another question for another day.
