Kristen's Baby Quilt

I made this baby quilt for our niece Kristen.  It was made in a “quilt-as-you-go” manner.  I literally sewed each strip with the batting and backing as the base.  Somehow the center ended up “puffing” up so it doesn’t lay flat.  I think I must have “stretched” the long strips as I sewed them.  For a baby quilt, it didn’t end up mattering.  Still. 

The quilt is 39 in X 50 in.  It was made in 1996.

Here is a close photo to show some of the interesting fabrics.  Here is a photo of the back which is also pieced.
Here is the label.

I know I say this a lot, but I really love this one. Especially the front - it's like a rainbow.
