Signed, Sealed, Delivered

The quilt may be delivered, but the baby is not.  How’s that for meeting a deadline, folks?  Possibly the only time I’ll make a deadline ever.  What started as a pillow idea, turned into a beautiful baby girl quilt that I hope my sweet cousin will love using with her daughter.  This will be the first baby of the next generation in our family and I am so excited to have some new life at get-togethers.  Babies make everything more fun.  Also, I get paid in baby snuggles, so I can’t wait to meet this little one.

There really is nothing like shipping off a quilt and knowing it’s going to someone you love.  Today I’m linking up to quite a few fun linky parties you should check out:  WiP Wednesday, Needle and Thread Thursday, and Finish it Up Friday!

Now I’m off to Los Cabos, Mexico to celebrate 3 years of marriage to this guy:

  1. Great job on all counts–quilt before the baby, and such a good job on the quilt! Fitting that the new generation of babies is starting with a quilt from the new generation of quilters. Happy anniversary–have a great vacation!

  2. It turned out lovely! The quilting is so perfect for a giant granny square! Very nice binding choice, I love that part–it’s the last bit and then you are DONE! Unless you didn’t do a label and then there’s that…blah.

  3. I’m still learning to love binding – glad you love yours 😉 The quilting is fab – the baby will love it and treasure it for years, I’m sure! Have a fantastic time in Mexico and a very Happy Anniversary to you and your husband 😀
