This pattern was the first I ever made. Now I make it for my close friends and family whenever they have a baby. I made this one for my college roommate’s baby boy. I used the blues as that is a common “boy” color. It is a great quilt to use up small piece of fabric as the squares are tiny!

    there must be something wrong with the voting button,, I tried to vote for this new contest and it said I already voted on Poll #22, which I didn’t. This is the first time I had seen the boys quilts… so my vote goes to the TRANSPORTATION QUILT must just be a glitch in the system
