Hunter's Quilt Finish

Time goes fast--I meant to post about grandson Hunter's quilt finish a week ago.  I did complete the quilt on the deadline, his 3 month mark, and took it over to DD Elaine so he could be posed on it for photos.
 Here is the little charmer inspecting the quilting and blocks, from Mama's lap.  

What a little flirt, with that half smile! Hunter is growing well and getting so much personality.  He loves to watch his brother Cove, but his best smiles are saved for his Mama.


 It was hard to get a good photo of the quilting, but you can see where concentric partial circles from opposite corners I stitched overlapped  in the center.  I was happy at how my idea worked out.  It was not too painful, using the guides provided that slide into the back of my walking foot.  I did use a little piece of tape on the guide bar to avoid having to continuously remeasure the 2" width I was going for.  The bars are not fixed and can be pushed in when shifting fabric under the foot and needle.  Spray basting is key to this method!

I used the monkey print for a one-piece backing, and a solid black for the binding.  Again, this pattern is Adam's Rib, from Fons and Porter magazine.  It was an easy block and I can see myself making this again in a different colorway.  So glad Hunter now has a quilt from his Mimi, made with much love.

Hunter is upstaging his quilt so I can't really focus on the beautiful quilt for all the baby cuteness!

Looks like Hunter approved the finished product--and that is such a cute little grin. : )

Beautiful quilt and gorgeous baby! Hunter is a month or so older than Lenny - love those smiles and pretty sure Lenny saves his best ones for his Mumma as well!
