|The back is the easiest way to see all the quilted blocks!|
Square 18 is Mr. Snake. I was hoping to have him finished for this morning, but I still think I'm in good shape to be done with the panel and working on the borders by mid week!
One of the squares I finished recently had both a boy and a girl. Since the baby has already been born, and the gender is no surprise, I decided to only outline the little boy.
Each block has an outer and an inner border around its center piece. For half of the blocks this is a light and dark of the same color. In the course of my stitching, I've found the boundary between the light and dark is harder to discern with certain colors. For example, the yellow squares have been quite easy to stitch. However, the line between the two shades in the red squares is more difficult to see (and those blocks go a good deal slower). I think they picked very similar reds!
