Design Wall Monday

Off my design wall today is the ombré quilt for my sister in law. I spent many hours on Saturday happily stitching to get the top done. 
Not the best pic but I'm pleased with how it turned out. My sister Kathy let me go through her batiks yesterday and gave me a beautiful hand-painted length for the backing. I'll have to add a "frame" around  the piece to make it big enough, which means another trip to the store, but did select a binding from previously purchased batiks. I even have a plan for the quilting. Yay, me!

This happy little grandson is four months old and got his latest shots--see his little BandAids?  According to his babysitter, he's a "rolling machine", practicing all day. Way to go, Cove!  Hope to get some grandson time this week.

Annie the quilt turned out great and will make a wonderful gift. I can't believe how much Cove has grown and just how much hair he has! He's a real cutie for sure.

Your blend of colors and the pretty prints is a feast for the eyes in this bold quilt. I'm sure it will be appreciated and loved.
Grow, Cove, grow! and it looks like he's doing just that. Such a little cutie!

The Ombre quilt looks great. Cove has grown so much. He looks to be a happy little kiddo.
