I'm back with a finished quilt to share. I was busy last week finishing up a quilt to be judged which I'll show you tomorrow. As soon as that one was done, I started this baby quilt for my nephew's baby-to-be.
On Thursday afternoon, I made a test block and cut everything out. On Friday, I pieced like a mad woman! The top was done at 5pm, back was pieced, quilt layered and pin basted by 6pm. Half of the quilting was done by 6:30, but I had to take a break to attend a concert with my husband. (Buddy Guy with special guest 14-year old Quinn Sullivan. Amazing kid!)
I finished the quilting after the show. It's my go-to swirly loop.
I posted this "Binding at Midnight" pic to instagram. It gives you a view of the striped and dotted Kaffe print in the binding and the adorable Riley Blake print in the border. I hand stitched the binding on Saturday morning, when I wasn't needed in the judging room.
Jamie, the mom-to-be, is truly glowing.
I'll have to do another post with the cute DIY baby shower details. My sister and Jamie's mom did an amazing job.
