Baby quilt


And after...
I know I promised last week to get a picture of a baby quilt top I was making put up....then 2 birthdays happened and I got dazed and confused - that's my excuse at least:)

But today's the day! My friend had her baby shower today and I finally got the quilt done. It included finishing the quilting at 2am this morning and finishing the binding at 10am as I was leaving for the shower, but it's done done, including the basting removed and tails cut off!

Don't you love baby showers?! Especially when like my friend, you already have 3 boys and this one was a girl! (the baby was born a month ago - I know, it took us a while to get our acts together!)

I can't take credit for the 9 patches - I got them in an internet swap on Pat Sloan's yahoo group about 3 years ago. One of the 9 patches in this quilt is even made by Pat herself!

Now I can take all my pumpkin stuff down and concentrate on Christmas. Yes I still have pumpkin quilts up. And it's December. Hope you have now had your laugh of the day!

It turned out so great! How precious for your friend to have a girl after all those boys, LOL.

I have one boy and three girls, LOL.
