Just made this adorable bib this morning. My daughter is expecting her 6th in a few weeks. I made the bib in "Earth & Sky" for the center and the outside in "SkyBlue". The ties I did in Earth & Sky and made a sc round. My daughter loved it. Will probably do a few more in different colors. Thanks for the adorable pattern.

I made one last night in Lily Sugar n Cream In Motion varigated and Tangerine solid. Everything just came together without a snag of any kind. Love the pattern. If I crochet last 11 stitches it even makes a nice square for a blanket. Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.
