Finally finished! Yeah!
I got my act together and started quilting this bad boy last weekend....and have been working on it ever since. Little by little, as I found some time, here and there. I got it done. Even stayed up late last night to get the binding done. Now, I just need to wash it, but I wanted to get my pictures in while the light was good.
I am really pleased with how it came out. I was able to include to include most of the details that my friend wanted including a ruffled bum, some bibs and a blanket grandma made. I hope she likes it. This is always the most nerve racking part....waiting to get the final appoval.
Here is the back, where I showcased the patchwork flannel blanket, that was a gift from the baby's grandmother. I must admit I felt horrible taking the blanket apart. The whole thing was hand stitched, but my friend really wanted it included in the quilt. One of the main reasons was that it well loved and well washed, and starting to show some signs of wear. Better to have it included in the quilt than have it get lost or ruined over the years.
Here is my next project, another commissioned baby memory quilt. I can't wait to get started. I have my drawing ready and will be meeting with her this weekend to go over what she wants for this quilt.
Linking up to Work in Progress Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
