Quilt #3

Quilt number three is a present for a friend having a baby boy this December in Texas.  I followed this pattern (blog), which was very well written and easy to follow and also free.

I made the quilt exactly as described in the pattern, except I used the blue fabric line rather than the pink.  Both are very nice, but I think I actually prefer the blue, regardless of gender.  But then, blue and green are my favorite colors.
