Baby Quilt done!

So, I’ve been quilting lately again… we’ve talked about this, right?  So, I’m super excited to finally have finished a quilt!  Right!!??  It’s super satisfying and it was a nice change of pace from the big quilts for the youngins.  My friend had a baby recently and she’s been super good to me.  I mean, she’s just one of those people that you want to put in your pocket and bring out when you need a good laugh or an encouraging word.  She’s hosted many sewing classes as well, so I was so happy to get to make this for the new man in her life.  She appeared to like it, so I’m going to go with it was a hit!

These squares were super fun to make and they are really small.  Everything is cuter small in sewing.  These blocks are just 5″ squares.  So, fun, right!?  It’s finished size is about 40″ish square

I love this polka dot fabric for the binding.  It adds some character.

Would you believe I didn’t get a picture of the back!?… of course you would.  You know me too well.  It’s just one piece of fabric… nothing terribly fun, but it was a fun fabric.  You’ll just have to trust me.  I went with a simple box straight line quilting.  I think it really adds to the design.  It felt good to finish a quilt.

Show and tell is over for now!  Back the the Olympics you go!  I’ll be back later for more!
