A finish!





I finished a baby quilt today. And just in time too. Her daddy and mommy are moving after next weekend to go serve the Lord in a church in Indiana. I'm right on schedule with it - she's going on 6 months old, lol.

The quilt is a scrappy disappearing nine patch. It's so scrappy the disappearing nine-patch really does disappear!. One day I decided I really was not the floral type person, so I dumped all my floral/pastels F.Q. in a box and started cutting squares. This is quilt #2 from round #1 of cutting - enough scraps remain to do at least 2 more baby quilts. The border is the same fabric that was used to back baby Wynter's quilt - told ya I liked it. It was also used to back quilt #1 from the scrappy disappearing nine-patches.

The close-up photo shows one of my favorite fabrics in the quilt. I just didn't think I would ever use it in anything else, so it ended up in the pile. It is the green rectangle with plum and purple and dark pink colored flowers.

Off to sew some more. I'm really loving not having to worry about school work :-). Freedom until August 24th when classes start back up.
