Mod Circles Baby Quilt

My DD Elaine was worried the Mod Circles Baby Quilt we collaborated on was not going to get finished by her deadline--Friday--but Mom came through and got it finished!  Here it is all quilted, using my favorite simple design, the wavy line.  I think it is a good contrast with the circles and modern enough to suit the overall feel.



Elaine co-hosted a shower today for her friend and mom-to-be, the lovely Allison, and obliged me by getting a photo of the quilt with its new owner during the shower.  Thanks, sweetie!
 
The yellow polka dot binding we picked out really looks great, if I may say so myself :)  Since I finished the quilt at 10 p.m.--with a label even!--and Elaine whisked it away soon after, I'll have to ask to borrow it back for a photo shoot.  Allison and her husband chose not to learn the sex of their baby so we will all be surprised in a couple of months.  Welcome Baby!

Oh Annie, I love this charmer. Perfect for the new baby. I love it when parents wait to see what the baby is going to be. :)

Everything about it works so well together -- fabric choices, pattern, quilting design and the terrific yellow binding. Great job "Mom." Lucky Baby.

I love everything about this quilt -- the colors, the design, the quilting, the binding, the photos, and of course beating the deadline.
You're a bundle of energy and major quilting skills, Ms. Annie.
Job well done!
