Aaliyah's Quilt

Another friend with an upcoming arrival, another baby quilt :) Dad is currently deployed, leaving Mom with a sixteen-month-old and the new baby, who should be making her appearance any day now. I used Amanda Jean's Fair and Square pattern, with a few adjustments. I centered the offset rows (way too OCD to handle them not being centered) and made it smaller for a baby quilt (squares finishing at 5", sashing at 2", top and bottom at 3"). I like how bright and cheerful it turned out, and hopefully the new baby will like it as well!Love the one red duck :)
