Well, I've done it again.
Stayed up waaaaaay too late sewing.
3:30am to be exact!
But I finished my quilt and it was well worth it.
I've been working on this quilt for a couple months now. It's a gift for friends of ours who just had a baby, and I had promised myself I'd finish it by the baby's due date. Well, the baby came three weeks early, but I still managed to meet my deadline since the baby was technically due yesterday :-)
This quilt is based on the Sweet Menagerie Nine Patch Quilt from the Moda Bake Shop. I used Tula Pink's Hushabye fabric, which I absolutely love! In fact, this quilt is a "cousin" of my first quilt. I had tons of jelly roll strips left, so this pattern worked perfectly.
Here's the back:
And here's a another picture of the front. In this one you can see how I quilted it.
The quilting was inspired by Ashley at Film in the Fridge. I really love her methods of straight line quilting!
And this is my "Little Helper." We really enjoyed the sun today.
I'm linking this to amylouwho's Sew & Tell Friday, which was a great motivation to go ahead and get this quilt done! So thanks for the motivation Amy, and now I'm off to nurse that darn quilting hangover . . . **yawn** . . . and figure out what to feed the family for dinner!
