The embroidered blocks are set in the middle, surrounded by the churn dash pieced blocks. I separated the blocks with a one inch strip of a little blue print. It turned out to be larger than most baby quilts would be, at 51 1/2" x 41 1/2". Maybe it will make a better quilt for a toddler anyway since mom or dad can recite the nursery rhymes to the child. If I give this as a gift, a Mother Goose book would make a good companion gift. There is a doll quilt in my frames now, so I want to finish it before quilting this one. Thanks for all the nice comments you've sent my way concerning the embroidered blocks. I always see mistakes; however, my quilts are not made to hang up on the wall to pick out the crooked places, but rather to be scrunched up around a sleeping child.
