Late Stage

I'm up to the finishing stage of the baby quilt, though the baby isn't here yet--he's over a week late. He'll be my grandchild's cousin and we're all anxious to meet him. 
I did some simple quilting with the walking foot and then added some freehand loops. 
I like the effect on the back too. Originally I was going to do an X in the squares but felt the single line was a bit more modern. I had predicted the baby would be born on Tuesday at 2:00 am--I could still be right!

Very cute, Annie. I like the little scallop stitches. Is that a decorative stitch on your machine?
Is there a prize if you did guess right?

Do you win a prize if you predict correctly? :o) I think you'll have it completed just in the nick of time. It's so sweet.

Oooh I love that quilting Annie! It really adds a lot of fun visual interest to the quilt top....

Im guessing this baby wont make an appearance until Thursday. 4.21 am. (your time or mine - my inner psychic isnt being that specific)

Perfect fabric choice for the quilt, and the quilting looks fantastic! I am pretty sure the baby was just waiting for the quilt to be finished and will be here soon!

What a lovely little quilt. I'm with you on the quilting, I'd be tempted to do Xs, but it looks fantastic just as it is.
