I managed to finish the houndstooth baby quilt a mere 15 minutes before the baby shower today at noon for my Bunco mate, Leslie.
I got up early this morning and completely stipple quilted the sandwich, made the binding and applied it, and hand stitched up the corners in near record time, for me. Have I mentioned I'm not fast?
The sock monkeys are dancing all over the back. A simple label completed the gift.
The beautiful mom-to-be Leslie was most generous in her praise of the quilt, which made me happy.
There's a novelty in this photo--my friend is taller than I am :) Others at the shower commented this quilt should hang on the wall. I told Leslie to let it be dragged around, spit up on, closed in a car door, washed a hundred times, or whatever life with three kids dishes out. I want my quilts to be used and loved! Now on to quilt number 2, which is due in a week and DD Elaine is waiting for it...fairly patiently so far...
