The Other Baby Quilt

The other baby quilt I used gingham on, except it was blue this time.. This one was for my one and only (so far) grandson. Apparently he loves it to bits! I washed it before I gave it to his dad to give to him, that is why it looks lumpy - it is still wet! It looked a lot better when it was dry..
If I had the opportunity to make these quilts again, I would use something other than gingham on the back. I thought it was a good idea at the time, but I was very much a beginner. With the 'stitch-in-the-ditch' quilting, it didn't line up with the stripes on the back. The recipients of these quilts don't know anything about quilting so I guess it isn't really important.
As long as the 'Quilt Police' never see them !!!
