Baby Quilt

Hubby's buddy just had his first grandchild - Evelyn Rose - so a quilty gift was in order. I started this Friday and delivered it today.

The pattern is from 3 Dudes Quilting, via Missouri Star Quilt Co's video tutorial, using a rainbow jelly roll I bought last year and mermaid fabric left over from "my" quilt.
I was afraid the colors were too much, but hubby and I both liked the combo, so I crossed my fingers and finished it. Love how it turned out. And hubby's buddy (says he) loves it.
A poet I'm not, but I like the note I came up with (with the help of a rhyming dictionary. How sad is that??)
For T--- and S---, a grandparent quilt.
I'm not for the shelf, for use I was built.
Just wash me on cold and dry me on low,
and I will stay nice as your little one grows.
