I think I'll call it:
Thing One & Thing Two meets
Side One & Side Two

The baby arrived safe and sound I'm happy to report and it's a BOY. Even tho the quilt was designed for either, if it had been a girl I'd have missed a rare chance to do it up pink and frilly so I'm kind of pleased.
Sewing in Circles
|eyes closed and always talking -classic!|
|Less Than Traditional -Four Patch Star|
Because using a rotary is an acquired skill, I cut the strips and she stitched the four patches. Pretty impressive for the first time behind the wheel and my new Baby lock Serenade with the speed control, needle down and other handy features made it nice too.
It's been years since I made the first one and about a year since I made this Hawaiian version and somehow I'd forgotten how awkward sewing in circles can be. Like manipulating the curves of a winding road when you've just barely learned to drive. What was I thinking! After a rocky start with the first two attempts, she had it wired and whipped out the rest staying right on the line -I was truly impressed.
