Two Quilts Down...

So, I don't know if you'll recall, but I have 3 baby quilts that need to be made. Well, I finished the one for my friend Taylor, and was working on the one for my cousin Jean. I got a little side-tracked though. First there was sick baby. Then there was sick me. Then there was Valentine's week. Then there was Pride and Prejudice on PBS. Then there was sick baby again. I know, lots of things to keep me busy and away from my quilting.

WELL! Tonight Marshy went to bed a little early and I figured, since there was nothing on TV, that I would hurry and finish the quilt top for my cousin's baby quilt. What do you know? It only took me 15 minutes! Now why had I put it off for so long?? I'm sure I could've found 15 minutes to spare somewhere....yeah right!

Anyway, it is done, the back is seamed, and it is ready to go up and be put on the Gammil. Hooray!


I used the 'Lil Dude pattern from one of my issues of Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting. The pattern calls for two borders, but I did one like this for Marshy without the borders and it is actually a really nice size, especially if you have to fit it in the diaper bag!


This is a closeup of what the fabrics look like. It is a lot of yellows and pinks, but I think that the greens and purples help make it not too overpowering. The backing fabric is a bright green with circles that vary in color from the green to almost a yellow. Not sure what I'm going to use for binding, but we'll figure that out when we get there!

That is darling! Are you going to be quilting on Saturday?? I'd like to get on the machine when it is free! I have a runner to power out!
